An update on this: I've tested a patch from the i8042 maintainer to fix
the reboot problem, so that should appear in the kernel eventually.
I'm having another big problem though. What was the exact
cpufreq/powernow issue you were seeing? For me, it works fine for a few
hours, and then I see "pending change bit stuck" errors from the
powernow-k8 driver. On the cpufreq mailing list I'm told to suspect
faulty hardware, so I'd like to find out if I have a bad board or this
is a problem with this Chaintech model.
