Subject[patch] x86: Introduce BOOT_EFI and BOOT_CF9 into the reboot sequence loop
This patch is to introduce BOOT_EFI and BOOT_CF9 in the reboot sequence
loop, to fix the reboot problem on the known Intel Bay Trail-T based
platform, for example, ASUS-T100 and Dell Venue 8/11 Pro. These
platforms don't support ACPI reboot, we expect to call EFI runtime
service to handle this case, and CF9 is an alternate after EFI.

We don't need any dmidecode based quirks any more, we don't need extra
"reboot=efi" or "reboot=p" in the command line. The machine can be
rebooted automatically with the patch.
