Weird.
The dmesg shows that the memory map gotten from e820 table is changed.
And the file attached shows that rsdp points to different rsdt address.

so you may get different e820 table when running 2.6.25.10 as well?
could you please attach the dmesg output of a 2.6.25.10 kernel which has
the ACPI error?

Don't know. :(
It looks like a hardware issue as BIOS export different e820 tables.
But from your description, it seems to be a software regression.
please try to revert c3965bd15118742d72b4bc1a290d37b3f081eb98 and see if
it helps.
Please re-attach the kernel config files as attachments.

thanks,
rui
