No I did not. But I now have the latest kernel up-and-running, thanks.

The issue with only 1 CPU being detected and CPU scaling not working is
clear. That's due to the kernel being booted with acpi=off. Anaconda
took that from my install kernel parameters. With ACPI on the F11 alpha
DVD oopses on my system.
Unfortunately with the new kernel I still cannot enable ACPI, with ACPI
enabled I get an oops halting the kernel. Furthermore the partial
upgrade left me without a working wireless connection. Off to a complete
reinstall.
