I think this and https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1017783 is an
example of a bunch of toshiba schlaptops which cause the issue. So it
looks like ACPI is doing something very early on those which tickles the
issue to happen.

But this is ACPI - anything can happen!

Attach it to the bugzilla too, pls, because the people there trigger the
issue.

I have the respective(?) SUSE bug and I can ask people there to run it
too.

Thanks.
