Just adding a note: I regularly use FreeBSD on a Toshiba notebook, and
switched from 4.x to 5.x to benefit from cardbus support.
Well, I started with 5.2.1 and all things did well. Since then, I'm
trying to track 5-STABLE with no success. Starting with 5.3-RELEASE,
the ACPI stopped to work, as well as did the rl driver.
So, I switched back to 5.2.1.
