Subject: Re: Acer Aspire One now hangs on reboot/shutdown


Since git commit 
  660e34cebf0a11d54f2d5dd8838607452355f321 x86: reorder reboot method
  preferences, 
my Acer Aspire One hangs on reboot.  It appears that its ACPI method
for rebooting is broken.  The attached patch adds a quirk so that the
machine will reboot via the BIOS.
