Sounds very much like a kernel ACPI bug, so reassigning to kernel.

Read ya, Phil
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2007-10-11 02:32:04 EDT
Is this still a problem with the 2.6.23 based kernels ?
If so, can you boot with initcall_debug and let us know the last few lines on
the screen ?

i used rawhide f8 live cd and it did not work.

i think its a broken acpi table but i dont know.

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
