This is an ugly problem which recently got addressed mainline.
Every pre-defined ACPI method gets checked whether the return type fits and
eventually it gets converted.
This won't get backported.
In fact this is a BIOS bug, but a very corner case (even depending on which
ACPI version is returned, even XP seem to behave differently than Vista and
7...).

Ok, this already is in latest Linus tree, I expect it's related to this
(drivers/acpi/acpica/nsrepair.c):
+ /*
+ * Integer-to-String conversion. Commonly, convert
+ * an integer of value 0 to a NULL string. The last element of
+ * _BIF and _BIX packages occasionally need this fix.
+ */

You could give kernel-default and kernel-default-base packages from here:
ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/kernel/kotd/master/x86_64
a try.
-> Setting to resolved upstream, please reopen if this is not the case.
