I'm not familiar with ACPI, so here's only nitpickings:

there are few places where FreeBSD version numbers left unchanged, like
"DragonFly 4.9" or "DragonFly 5.x".

Section 6.16.2 contains source code paths, but they refer to older
code we brought from FreeBSD-4.x.

|The path to the ACPI-CA source code is src/sys/contrib/dev/acpica.
|The glue code that allows ACPI-CA to work on DragonFly is in
|src/sys/dev/acpica/Osd. Finally, drivers that implement various ACPI
|devices are found in src/sys/dev/acpica.

should be

|The path to the ACPI-CA source code is
|src/sys/contrib/dev/acpica-unix-YYYYMMDD, where YYYYMMDD is release date
|of ACPI-CA source code. The glue code that allows ACPI-CA to work on
|DragonFly is in src/sys/dev/acpica5/Osd. Finally, drivers that implement
|various ACPI devices are found in src/sys/dev/acpica5.

and architecture-dependent code resides in /sys/${ARCH}/acpica5.

Section contains references to freebsd-bugs or freebsd-current
list, but these should be replaced with our list address.

Section 6.16.6 illustrates how to recompile acpi module, but the directory
should be changed from /sys/modules/acpi/acpi to /sys/dev/acpica5 .
This section contains a reference to acpi(4), but it doesn't exist.

Section 6.16.7 contains reference to acpi_thermal(4), but it doesn't
This section contains a reference to FreeBSD ACPI mailing list,
which I think is O.K. and I'd recommend subscribing to the list to get
better information/help from them. Posting ACPI-related bug report of
DragonFly to freebsd-acpi is not desirable though.
