I've just committed code disabling known-bad BIOS revisions.  This will
disable ACPI on such systems.  If you think ACPI does work on your system
or just want to test, set:


This will override the blacklist.

  Add new quirk code that disables problem BIOS versions.  Remove old quirk
  code that was never really used.  Print a message when disabling ACPI via
  a quirk.  Allow the user to override the blacklist decision by setting
  hint.acpi.0.disabled="0".  Add missing AcpiTerminate() calls; they are
  needed to clean up if bailing out after AcpiInitializeSubsystem().
