What's really impressive to me is that OpenBSD wrote their own ACPI implementation. Perhaps now that it's maturing, that is also partly why they're able to achieve better results. Maybe Intel's code is hard to work with, or it's just much more difficult to motivate yourself to work on someone else's code when that someone doesn't share your aesthetic and engineering sensibilities.
