It boot occationally. It does not seem to matter if I include the acpi
device into the kernel or not.

I get this message in an verbose boot:
KLD file acpi.ko - could not finalize loading

I have now included a lot of debuging options. But since the server
freezes, Im not able to send a break signal to get into the debugger.

I'll try to run FSBD8 on the server later this week.
