Hang with powerd/powernow with SMP enabled

The machine will freeze hard a few seconds after powerd is started up by
the rc script. With kern.smp.disabled=1, everything seems to work fine.
This is with today's 6-STABLE/i386. I see that a fix for that sort of
thing was only recently MFC'd, unfortunately I cannot say whether the
problem was already there before it went in - the box is brand new.

Various debugging information:

sysctl -a | grep cpu:


sysctl -a | grep acpi:


dmesg -v (SMP)


acpidump -dt:


Let me know if I can provide more information.
