The output is this:

[ 0.084088] ACPI: Core revision 20100428
[ 0.119451] ACPI Warning: Platform took > 100 usec to enter ACPI mode (20100428/evxfevnt-106)
[ 0.128231] Setting APIC routing to physical flat

So it's very fast ... actually it's behaving like there's some caching
issue and it needs two reads to return the correct value
