:The new thing that's broken on this laptop is acpi. In UP I need to disable it to get all the
:devices working (ichsmb0 and pccb can't map interrupts when acpi was enabled).
:So the next thing I'll try to do is backport new acpi support from FreeBSD. Yeesh.  I'm not
:convinced this will fix APIC + nata, but it'll keep me busy for a while. ;)
:Anyone have some ideas about why APIC + nata might be broken?

    Typically breakages with our old ACPI are due to our lack of support
    for ACPI's interrupt routing.  Any work done in this regard can only
    be good.
