Point taken, suppose it's a good idea to test on different machines.

However, now it looks again like a DFly problem. I tested on
Virtualbox 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and finally reproduced it on a physical
machine too. It only concerns installations where all partitions are
UFS. It does not show for a hammer system (ie root HAMMER and /boot

I used the partition layout:

/  UFS
/usr  UFS

when booting the system from hdd, the acpi/ehci error shows for DFly
3.6.x and 3.8.0RC where both are x86_64. So it appeared already in
