I don't see how this could be triggered by ACPI.  If you reboot the 
system with ACPI disabled (or enabled), do you also get this message? 
We don't acquire or release Giant explicitly and the device and 
interrupt are both marked MPSAFE.  Well, we use Giant for busdma to set 
up the 1 MB trampoline in low memory for resume but that shouldn't 
affect this unless there's a bug in busdma.

BTW, why doesn't "panic" from the debugger prompt actually reset the 
system any more?
