    SubjectNot rebooting.

    In case anyone is interested, the default method of rebooting doesn't work
    on this 486/66 motherboard I have dug up.

    Also, /proc/cpuinfo says:
    model : 487 DX

    It's really a i486 DX2/66 MHz.

    Specifying 'reboot=bios' does work however, which leads me to a question:

    If the default method of rebooting without the BIOS (using keyboard/triple
    fault) doesn't work, why does the current code sit in an infinite loop when
    it would be just as easy to attempt that a certain number of times and then
    attempt the BIOS instead?

    A pair of debugging printk's told me which reboot it was trying to do each
    time, specifically machine_restart() in arch/i386/kernel/process.c

    -George
