x86: fix reboot with no keyboard attached
Attempt to fix http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8378 Hiroto Shibuya wrote to tell me that he has a VIA EPIA-EK10000 which suffers from the reboot problem when no keyboard is attached. My first patch works for him: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=59f4e7d572980a521b7bdba74ab71b21f5995538 But the latest patch does not work for him : http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=8b93789808756bcc1e5c90c99f1b1ef52f839a51 We found that it was necessary to also set the "disable keyboard" flag in the command byte, as the first patch was doing. The second patch tries to minimally modify the command byte, but it is not enough. Please consider this simple one-line patch to help people with low end VIA motherboards reboot when no keyboard is attached. Hiroto Shibuya has verified that this works for him (as I no longer have an afflicted machine). Additional discussion: Note that original patch from Truxton DOES disable keyboard and this has been in main tree since 2.6.14, thus it must have quite a bit of air time already. http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.14.y.git;a=commit;h=59f4e7d572980a521b7bdba74ab71b21f5995538 Note that he only mention "System flag" in the description and comment, but in the code, "disable keyboard" flag is set. outb(0x14, 0x60); /* set "System flag" */ In 2.6.23, he made a change to read the current byte and then mask the flags, but along this change, he only set the "System flag" and dropped the setting of "disable keyboard" flag. http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.23.y.git;a=commit;h=8b93789808756bcc1e5c90c99f1b1ef52f839a51 outb(cmd | 0x04, 0x60); /* set "System flag" */ So my request is to restore the setting of disable keyboard flag which has been there since 2.6.14 but disappeared in 2.6.23.
