I actually find it quite late already. I would have preferred a few more 
weeks (or months) of exposure, particularly because I recall several ACPI 
related tickets (without it being enabled by default). Well, I guess we can 
turn it on now, and decide in the next two weeks whether to leave it enabled 
in the release or best to disable it again.

Interesting question.
