Re: VIA K8T800 / VIA 8237 mainboard

I have a workaround for the reboot issue.  To recap, this was regarding
the Chaintech MK8M800 motherboard which hangs on reboot under Linux 2.6
series kernels.

To get around this problem, either set the i8042.reset kernel boot
parameter (this may have adverse affect on PS/2 devices) or apply the
one line change to i8042.c shown at

It's frustrating that this problem and the associated workarounds were
discussed almost a year ago, yet there is no resolution or even mention
of the situation in the current kernel.

--Thanks, John
