    Interesting. The comments still indicate that kbd is the default vector.

    In any case:
    - just booted with a gentoo liveCD (3.3.0 kernel)
    - tried the default reboot - hangs (last console message: "Remounting /
    read only ..")
    - tried with reboot=a - hangs (same last console message)

    For what it's worth, creating a path for X86_64 mode to reboot through
    the bios seems like
    a good thing to put on the wish list.
