Subject[PATCH 1/3] X86: Revamp reboot behaviour to match Windows more closely
Date
Windows reboots by hitting the ACPI reboot vector (if available), trying
the keyboard controller, hitting the ACPI reboot vector again and then
giving the keyboard controller one last go. Rework our reboot process a
little to default to matching this behaviour, although we'll fall through
to attempting a triple fault if nothing else works.
