Subject[10/18] x86: ASUS P4S800 reboot=bios quirk
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Leann Ogasawara <>

commit 4832ddda2ec4df96ea1eed334ae2dbd65fc1f541 upstream.

Bug reporter noted their system with an ASUS P4S800 motherboard would
hang when rebooting unless reboot=b was specified. Their dmidecode
didn't contain descriptive System Information for Manufacturer or
Product Name, so I used their Base Board Information to create a
reboot quirk patch. The bug reporter confirmed this patch resolves
the reboot hang.
