Update 11.3 > 11.4

It might be useful if you put your question to either freebsd-stable or
perhaps freebsd-current to see if anyone was experiencing your problem
with similar equipment on 12 latest.

Perhaps also add your experience to the PR so others can see that this
is still a problem, and allocate resources accordingly.  If possible
state your motherboard & bios details, along with the error message(s)
from your 12.1 experience (and some basics like pciconf -lv).

Looking carefully at the PR, it seems that the view is that this is
either a ACPI or BIOS issue of particular DELL equipment, and folks with
fingers on the code can't reproduce due to lack of equipment.

If fixed, why still open?  Usually because it has been fixed and the
person fixing the problem is awaiting feedback, sometimes someone else
who is not aware of the PR notices a problem and fixes it without
searching bugzilla, or rarely, didn't have time to close. Lots of
reasons. :)

Kind regards.
PS I'd regard an i3 as low-end consumer, and an i7 or Xeon at the other
;)  And yes I still have a couple of VIA C3's running.  :)
