Subject[081/104] x86: Fix "Acer Aspire 1" reboot hang
3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Peter Chubb <peter.chubb@nicta.com.au>

commit 1ef03890969932e9359b9a4c658f7f87771910ac upstream.

Looks like on some Acer Aspire 1s with older bioses, reboot via bios
fails. It works on my machine, (with BIOS version 0.3310) but
not on some others (BIOS version 0.3309).

There's a log of problems at:

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=124136

This patch adds a different callback to the reboot quirk table,
to allow rebooting via keybaord controller.
