    If I turn off CONFIG_X86_UP_APIC I get:

    | ACPI disabled because your bios is from 00 and too old
    | You can enable it with acpi=force
    | Sony Vaio laptop detected.

    and ACPI is disabled. Halt doesn't work.

    If I then pass `acpi=force' to explicitly enable ACPI, `halt' works again and
    powers off the machine, but `reboot' causes a black screen with IDE disk spun
    down, but no restart.

    when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
