OK, I'll work on that later today or tomorrow. Are we ever planning on
acpi support? Is it already there and I'm just not seeing it? Your

we have it but as far as I know it's not there.
For basic ACPI support all you need to do is add 'device acpica' into
kernel configuration file. This will statically compile ACPI support
kernel. This is not in the GENERIC kernel configuration file as to
any extra intrusion people may feel about ACPI at this time(there was a
of pressure against me adding ACPI into DragonFly). In FreeBSD 5.x the
default is a kernel loadable module, hence the options to boot without
in the loader.
