Thread: AMD64 reboot regression

  1. AMD64 reboot regression

    I started testing 2.6.28 with -rc1 on my system (x86-64, AMD Phenom
    9500 Quad Core CPU) and found that I was unable to reboot, though I was
    able to with the Ubuntu-provided 2.6.27 kernel. I have found that a
    commit on 17-Oct-2008 (commit 8fd145917fb62368a9b80db59562c20576238f5a)
    is responsible for this failure to reboot. Reversing this single change
    on my local kernel (current git tree plus this patch) has enabled me to
    reboot again.

    System board information is attached in the hopes that it will be found
    helpful; if any other information is necessary please let me know.

    The patch that reverts this change is attached, with stat:

    I'm having the same problem and reverting this commit fixes it too.
