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.
This matches the alpha3 release plan, with branching planned for the 16th of may.
