AFAIK this was done because windows installs on xen used to choke if ACPI was
enabled. There is an old wiki page corroborating that here, no idea if it is
still relevant, or if there were other issues at play:

I'm pretty sure the KVM maintainer has indicated we should enable ACPI
unconditionally these days, so I'd take a patch for that.
