Default Marvell Yukon driver cannot load with ACPI enabled

Hi folks,

I'm new to FreeBSD, and I'm trying to get it to run on my trashy Acer laptop, but I've run into an issue with the network adaptor: it won't be detected at all unless I run FreeBSD without ACPI. I get this on boot:

Code:
mskc0: <Marvell Yukon 88E8038 Gigabit Ethernet> irq 16 at device 0.0 on pci2
mskc0: 0x4000 bytes of rid 0x10 res 3 failed (0, 0xffffffff).
mskc0: unknown device: id=0xff, rev=0x0f
device_attach: mskc0 attach returned 6
Using kldload to load the if_sk driver fails, claiming "file already exists".

How can I work around this? I need my networking capabilities, but a laptop without ACPI is a bit useless for doing stuff on the go.

you realize that laptops are poorly supported under FreeBSD, do you?

Also, maybe your driver is autoloaded during boot, or build in kernel....
not enough info to tell anything....

Show your kernel configuration, dmesg output, with and without acpi enabled, and /boot/loader.conf
