Different kernel releases may have different acpi support/
implementantions. I mean, maybe the Gentoo kernel you were using at that 
time was not able to detect the full capabilities of your board and just 
enabled "suspension" and not "hibernation". 

Anyway, I'm not sure how to force acpi being "selective" for detecting 
one suspension method and avoid the other :-?

How about hidding the whole Powerdevil applet? If you don't need it at all
(it seem you are not usually switching between power management profiles) 
and makes you click something you want to avoid, I see no reason to 
having it there.
