That's a mighty big stick... I've found that with some trial and  
error, you can find the specific acpi component that is uncooperative  
and disable just that.  For example, I have some systems which don't  
like the ACPI timer.  So for those we have in /boot/loader.conf:


and it works just fine using some other timer mechanism.
