So if you enable ACPI and boot, it won't respond to keyboard no matter
whether you choose to boot into single- or multi-user mode?

So ... your keyboard does not work when you boot straight into the
single user mode, whether with or without ACPI driver enabled, right?
If not, I have no idea what this part really means:

If the message buffer(which dmesg command shows you) survives across
reboot, I'd like to look at it after you boot with ACPI driver enabled
and booted with `boot -v' from the boot loader prompt (did I ask if
keyboard works when you go into the boot loader prompt?).
