Default Re: Kernel module has bad memory allocation on FreeBSD 8.0 amd64 with 8GB RAM

On a thread on freebsd-stable@, John Baldwin has diagnosed this as a conflict between the ACPI resource list and the BIOS.

I can get the driver to work somewhat if the ACPI resource handling is disabled from loader.conf:
debug.acpi.disabled="sysres"

This works if the internal monitor is used; however, any external monitors are ignored.
