Just a small heads up: Boards with the new Intel Ivy bridge chipset
are affected, too. Currently known to be affected is

Intel Desktop Board DH77EB


Would be nice if Intel fixes the shared BIOS code...

Thanks to Drew Weaver for reporting the issue. I currently
don't have time to prepare another quirk.

Best regards
