Subject[patch 51/57] ACPI: Ingore the RESET_REG_SUP bit when using ACPI reset mechanism
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Zhao Yakui <yakui.zhao@intel.com>
Subject: [patch 51/57] ACPI: Ingore the RESET_REG_SUP bit when using ACPI reset mechanism

commit 8fd145917fb62368a9b80db59562c20576238f5a upstream

ACPI: Ingore the RESET_REG_SUP bit when using ACPI reset mechanism

According to ACPI 3.0, FADT.flags.RESET_REG_SUP indicates
whether the ACPI reboot mechanism is supported.

However, some boxes have this bit clear, have a valid
ACPI_RESET_REG & RESET_VALUE, and ACPI reboot is the only
mechanism that works for them after S3.

This suggests that other operating systems may not be checking
the RESET_REG_SUP bit, and are using other means to decide
whether to use the ACPI reboot mechanism or not.

Here we stop checking RESET_REG_SUP.
Instead, When acpi reboot is requested,
only the reset_register is checked. If the following
conditions are met, it indicates that the reset register is supported.
a. reset_register is not zero
b. the access width is eight
c. the bit_offset is zero
