Well, it did remind me about the "use real-mode to reboot" option, which I
had tried in the past, but not recently. I built up 2.4.12, and tried it
both with and without that option, as well as in combination with various
reboot= paramenters, but still no go, with or without apm.o loaded. I also
tried enabling "allow interrupts during apm calls", with no success.

Enabling output in dmi_scan.c reveals:
