Yes, I'll turn it back on for F8. I disabled it to find out
just how much stuff is depending on it.  Seems just acpid :-)

upstream intends to remove this functionality from the kernel
at the end of the year, so at some stage, we will need to either
a) make sure that acpid in f8 gets an update to work with
it not being present, or b) keep patching it into our update kernels.
(This option will get really painful moving forward, as acpi
 changes quite a lot).
