Even though they dont exists on a acpi_debug kernel. It does not really
matter since the real problem is that freebsd freezes on a normal generic

Me too. As a work around. But I would prefer a GENERIC kernel to boot.

I dunno. I dont have any insight into kernel programming. Hence trying to
get information how to help the people to fix the actual problem. That the
server freezes at boot. Im kind of lucky to have HP ILO on my side, to
test things. =)

But I will upgrade the BIOS. If that does not work, I'll try a clean
7.2-REL install.
