Unable to boot Asus P5QL-EM w/ acpi enabled

The mainboard is an ASUS P5QL-EM (Intel G43/ICH10) with BIOS revision 0406.

The kernel is loaded via firewire-enabled pxeboot.

The kernel message showed that kernel hangs after attached acpi_hpet.
At the moment firewire console would disconnect. If disable acpi then
it boots fine.

If booting with GENERIC kernel, it would hang even with acpi disabled,
and the last message is "run_interrupt_driven_hooks: still waiting
after 60 seconds for xpt_config" though there is no SCSI device
onboard.

According to my inaccurate memory,  kernel version as of 2008/08/20
boots fine with acpi.

dmesg, pciconf, acpidump and kernel config file attached.

Regards,
Jia-Shiun.
