This matches the alpha3 release plan, with branching planned for the 16th of may.In principle giving it more exposure would be great. I'd like to wait a bit until some "early-adopters" can give it a try with various configurations though. I'm afraid we'll have to implement some kind of ACPI cut-off date, blocking the use of ACPI for BIOSes dated earlier, because from what I've read there definitely are a lot of plain broken ACPI BIOSes around. Also some specific systems may need to be blacklisted. In any case I'm in favor of enabling the IO-APIC by default after a short cool-down phase, let's say one or two weeks from now, depending on how much feedback comes in.
