Subject[2.6.32.y, 2.6.34.y] Re: [PATCH] x86: Don't use the EFI reboot method by default
Hi Willy et al,

Please consider

f70e957cda22 x86: Don't use the EFI reboot method by default,
2011-07-06

for application to the 2.6.32.y and 2.6.34.y trees. The patch was
applied upstream late in the 3.0 cycle, so newer kernels don't need
it.

There are a variety of reports of the same panic at that bug on
2.6.32.y-, 2.6.38.y-, and 2.6.39-based kernels. Passing "reboot=a,w"
on the kernel command line avoids trouble for reporters.
