Have you isolated it further?  Try backing out rev 1.15 of
acpi_pci_link.c, referenced by this email (click on link for a patch):

I do believe John is working on this.  A temporary backout might be in
order but I'll let him decide on that.  Either way, the right direction
for this stuff is to keep moving forward and this commit was definitely a
step that way.
