SubjectRe: 2.6 kernel won't reboot on AMD system - 8042 problem?

The patch seems to work well! It doesn't apply completely cleanly
to my sources... maybe I left some of my own stuff in. On reboot, with
keyboard attached, I get this:

uart_close: bad serial port count; tty->count is 1, state->count2
while rebooting the system.

drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: ff -> i8042 (kbd-data) [121813]

drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: fa <- i8042 (interrupt, kbd, 1) [121886]

drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: aa <- i8042 (interrupt, kbd, 1) [122268]

drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: 20 -> i8042 (command) [122404]

drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: 45 <- i8042 (return) [122404]

drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: 60 -> i8042 (command) [122542]

drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: 65 -> i8042 (parameter) [122542]

Restarting system.

Mine is a VIA chipset with an AMD processor:

How do I fetch the exact information that would be needed for a DMI entry?

Thanks much,
