For the record here are the bugs that I am looking into for the next release.
Everything else is in SVN and the ACPI fix will be there soon too.

ACPI problem. 
  #290039, #290013, #289517, #288712, #285521
  These all seem to be the same problem introduced by an ACPI fix from
  upstream, I have a subsequent fix that should resolve this.
  See notes posted to #290039

Serial Problem.
  #287939, #288712, #285017
  These seem to be related so some seraial breakage, 
  likely related to the tty_lockup security fix (CAN-2004-0814).

IDE Detection.
  I am not sure if this is a new problem or not, but I will take a quick
  look to see what gives.
