Consider the mess that -stable is in right now with the PAE patches
still apparently crashing systems.
ACPI is too critical for us to track -stable with until it has
stabilized in -stable (or -current). I am not at all reassured
by the current state of affairs in -stable.
So I would say we should wait at least a few months, though I am not
against trying to identify why the original poster's particular system
doesn't boot and trying to fix that one thing.
