as someone who works for Intel near the ACPI dev team (yes one cube
away)... lets put it this way:
If Windows works with the BIOS, and Linux does not, that is a bug that
needs fixing in Linux. The ACPI team takes this and other bugs VERY
seriously; especially if the impact is severe functional impairment and
Windows does work. I would strongly suggest you file a bug in
bugzilla.kernel.org attaching your dsdt....
