Some questions regarding ACPI

I'm working on bringing in some laptop (and especially thinkpad) specific
ACPI code from FreeBSD into DragonFly. I never touched ACPI stuff before
and haven't followed it much either, so I have some questions.
* FreeBSD uses ACPI_SERIAL_* heavily. What's the locking situation in
DragonFly and why?
* As far as I can see, PCI integration is commented out in DragonFly.
What's the state of it and why?
* platform/pc32/acpica5/acpi_toshiba.c - why is it there? I don't think
that this is something pc32 specific in it and it should work in pc64
laptops as well. Any objections to move it into
What's the current status of ACPI in general? AFAICS our acpica is quite
old - what needs to be done to bring in newer one?
