I tested VirtualBox-3.2.6 against acpica 20100528 and part of this issue is 
still valid. When compiling an unpatched vbox I get this error:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
/usr/src/sbo_tmp/VirtualBox-3.2.6_OSE/src/VBox/Devices/PC/vbox.dsl   998:                      
0xdfdfffff,              // Range Length (calculated
Error    4118 -                                             Length is not 
equal to fixed Min/Max window ^

ASL Input:  /usr/src/sbo_tmp/VirtualBox-3.2.6_OSE/src/VBox/Devices/PC/vbox.dsl 
- 1305 lines, 46189 bytes, 288 keywords
Compilation complete. 1 Errors, 0 Warnings, 0 Remarks, 404 Optimizations
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

While the patch for vbox-cpuhotplug.dsl seems to be applied already, the one 
for vbox.dsl is still missing. If applied VirtualBox-3.2.6 compiles just fine.

Tested on Slackware64 13.1.

Grs,
Heinz
