The issue came bouncing in from fedora-list to lkml. I've never cared one
way or the other. And while I have no love for a BIOS maker (Phoenix) that
only give you options like "Are you happy with the settings as is: Yes/Yes",
the occasional kernel hacker has also been seen wearing brown paper bags.

Something like a quirk/white/black-list could be used to make it invisible.
But as I said, me not really care (and neither do you ;-) So let's just
bury this thread.
