As I thought I can't help you just by looking at the dmesg :(
Ok, there is a variable called debug.acpi.disabled (in non-patched
version it's debug.acpi.disable) to disable individual acpi subsystems.
When you have time, can you try to find out what subsystem triggers
the hang? The variable is a space-separated list and to be set at the
boot loader; for instance, if you want disable "cpu" and "lid",
type as follows from the boot loader:
OK set debug.acpi.disabled="cpu lid"
If you include "acpi", acpi itself is disabled. The valid subsystem
names are(you can find out by grep'ing acpi_disabled in /sys/dev/acpica5):
"acad" "acpi" "bus" "button" "children" "cmbat" "cpu" "ec"
"isa" "lid" "pci" "pci_link" "sysresource" "thermal" "timer"
