So the FADT PBLK is about this line:
            Processor (CP00, 0x10, 0x00000410, 0x06)

in your DSDT. The 0x0000410 is the PBLK and somehow it is NULL on your box. You 
run iasl -d on the DSDT to find out what exactly is there.

But I *think* that should not affect the C-states as it is just used for 
reserving some
CardBus regions.

So just so that you don't lose heart - the C states do work on my AMD box.

Interstingly the _PSS states are being reported as non-existent - but on 
they seem to exist.
