I'm responding because its been a month or so since my last response, 
and I haven't forgotten about this issue.

First, any custom tianocore build (*) should work. The required changes 
have been in the last few linaro snapshots as well 
(http://snapshots.linaro.org/components/kernel/linaro-edk2/, currently 
at 40) but I personally haven't had a lot of luck with the prebuilt 
images due to problems unrelated to this change. Others may have more luck.

* For those that don't know, tianno core is at:

Use the master branch

After setting the environment variables/dependencies appropriately:

make -f ArmPlatformPkg/ArmJunoPkg/Makefile all

Will create a functional ACPI firmware image for all recent kernels, 
including ACPI/PCIe ones.

Thanks for everyone's patience on this,
