Did you determine that the buffer overrun problem that caused
the slab corruption was the same thing that caused the unaligned
access messages?

Can you point me to the patch?  Or possibly a place to get the
20060217 ACPICA and the previous version, so I can extract the
patch myself?  I poked around the Intel ACPI web page, but could
only find the most recent ACPICA; there didn't seem to be any
history.
