Boot failure on ASUS A8V AMD 64(3200) with latest Preview

	Just built world and kernel to latest preview (repository synced
from chlamydia at 6am GMT this morning). Unfortunately the kernel will not
boot on my Asus A8V based box: it stops with the messages below on the
screen and does not respond to the keyboard at all. Booting with ACPI
disabled doesn't help nor does fiddling with the ACPI related controls in
the BIOS.

	Using a slightly older Preview kernel I get:
