I agree that the 2.6.27 default was changed to ACPI for the wrong reason.
However, I think it was the right thing to do,
and if you didn't propose it, I would.
My expectation is that with the ACPI default, our problem
is working around a finite list of old machines that don't work;
while with the default KBD, our problem is working around
a potentially unbounded list of yet to be shipped machines
who may only be tested and work using the ACPI method.
So I recommend leaving the default as ACPI for a while to
see how it goes.
ps. please cc: linux-acpi at vger.kernel.org on ACPI related changes.
