Yeah, I asked today on #ubuntu-kernel and people there were very
helpful and gave some good explanations (AE_AML_INVALID_RESOURCE_TYPE
etc.).

The acpidump.log I pastebin-ed today, so here it is :-).

The kernel shipped with Ubuntu/precise does not show the pnp/_CSR
issue, this is linux-image-3.2.0-23-generic (3.2.0-23.36).

Hope this helps.
