11.4 is acpi so unless my testing patch posted here last week was 
applied, there should be no acpi tables for the kernel.  At the start it 
says acpi interpreter is disabled.

 From the linux log it looks like the reset happen while doing agp 
stuff, which wont be initialised

shpchp: Standard Hot Plug PCI Controller Driver version: 0.4
Linux agpgart interface v0.101 (c) Dave Jones
agpgart: Detected VIA Apollo ProMedia/PLE133Ta chipset
