ACPI in DragonFly can not be compiled as a module, so you must remove it
from your kernel config file and recompile your kernel. I was experiensing
random hardlocks with ACPI on my laptop, which seems to have stoped now.
Everything seems pretty random for me at the moment, I have not been able
to track it down yet.
