The CFS doesn't affect your pnpacpi problem nor alsa.
It speeds up the scheduler to .24 speed and fixes wlan wpa issues, as reported

the patch is from ingo molnar (redhat kernel hacker), only cleaned up to apply 
to latest kernel source which already included some minor changes already.

pnpacpi will be fixed in kernel -> upstream issue
