    Subject[patch 023/104] x86: more general identifier for Phoenix BIOS
    2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

    From: Philipp Kohlbecher <>

    commit 0af40a4b1050c050e62eb1dc30b82d5ab22bf221 upstream.

    Impact: widen the reach of the low-memory-protect DMI quirk

    Phoenix BIOSes variously identify their vendor as "Phoenix Technologies,
    LTD" or "Phoenix Technologies LTD" (without the comma.)

    This patch makes the identification string in the bad_bios_dmi_table
    more general (following a suggestion by Ingo Molnar), so that both
    versions are handled.

    Again, the patched file compiles cleanly and the patch has been tested
    successfully on my machine.
