I figured as much since you said it was a real bootup problem. I've
been testing the same way.

I've tried a few other pieces of hardware that I have sitting around and
can't seem to recreate this. I've also double-checked the code to look
for any obvious bugs. No luck on either front. You didn't see any
other dmesg output from these, did you?

pr_info("skipping hardware autodetection\n");
pr_info("Please send 'dmidecode' output to dave@sr71.net\n");
