a work-around for a number of buggy BIOSes. Switch this option on if
your computer crashes instead of powering off properly.

+LinuxBIOS support
+CONFIG_LINUXBIOS
+ LinuxBIOS is an alternative GPL'd firmware initially for x86
+ compatible machines. LinuxBIOS attempts to be a simple and as fast
+ as possible, and is initially optimized for linux. The interface to
+ the OS is a table at the beginning of memory. Which should make the
+ inevitable firmware bugs easier to work around, as should the source
+ code :) A goal of this table is to provide enough information so
+ that any OS but especially linux does not need to have motherboard
+ specific knowledge.
+
+ This first release only provides LinuxBIOS detection (by detecting
+ it's table) and memory size detection.
+
+ For more information on LinuxBIOS see http://www.linuxbios.org
+
CONFIG_CMDLINE
Generally it is best to pass command line parameters via the
bootloader but there are times it is convinient not to do this.

+/* The linuxbios table information is for conveying information
+ * from the firmware to the loaded OS image. Primarily this

+ * other means, such as quering the hardware directly.
+ *
+ * All of the information should be Position Independent Data.
+ * That is it should be safe to relocated any of the information
+ * without it's meaning/correctnes changing. For table that
+ * can reasonably be used on multiple architectures the data
+ * size should be fixed. This should ease the transition between
+ * 32 bit and 64 bit architectures etc.
+ *
+ * The completeness test for the information in this table is:
+ * - Can all of the hardware be detected?
+ * - Are the per motherboard constants available?
+ * - Is there enough to allow a kernel to run that was written before
+ * a particular motherboard is constructed? (Assuming the kernel
+ * has drivers for all of the hardware but it does not have
+ * assumptions on how the hardware is connected together).
+ *
+ * With this test it should be straight forward to determine if a
+ * table entry is required or not. This should remove much of the
+ * long term compatibility burden as table entries which are
+ * irrelevant or have been replaced by better alternatives may be
+ * dropped. Of course it is polite and expidite to include extra
