pkg reports conflicts between SUNWcs and network/ftp, so the latter
should probably be deinstalled before updating.

Seeing that as well :(

I don't see any changes on HP Pavilion DV8 - suspend/resume not working
(and wasn't), however I got really tired by endless flow of acpica
exceptions in /var/adm/message - https://www.illumos.org/issues/1783.
While here, could we please add common/ and compiler/ subdirs from
acpica distribution to uts/intel/io/acpica, which will allow building
iasl (sorry if it's off-topic..)?
