Thanks very much for the report. This sounds like it could be a
PNPACPI issue, which I am very interested in fixing.

Can you please turn on CONFIG_PNP_DEBUG in your .config and collect
the complete dmesg log with and without "pnpacpi=off"?

I do have an "lspnp" that works with PNPACPI here:
but it's not widely used. The debug information from the config
option above is usually more useful.
