Unclear.

acpi_enter_idle_bm() assumes that it is entered with irqs enabled,
and so it we unconditionally disables IRQs.

Then we unconditionally re-enable them.

The problem seems to be that right after we enable them,
we find that they are actually disabled, perhaps as
a side-effect of SMM.

Is your machine a Dell, per chance?

Please test the patches in this bug report:
