Hi,

I verified on my IDEQ210M that performing the old reboot sequence
followed by the new reboot sequence works for me, and I suspect that
it will work for Lee also.  Like this :

	/* old method, works on most machines */
        for (i = 0; i < 100; i++) {
                kb_wait();
                udelay(50);
                outb(0xfe, 0x64);         /* pulse reset low */
                udelay(50);
        }

	/* new method, sets the "System flag" which when set,
	   indicates successful completion of the keyboard controller
	   self-test (Basic Assurance Test, BAT).  This is needed
	   for some machines with no keyboard plugged in */
        for (i = 0; i < 100; i++) {
                kb_wait();
                udelay(50);
                outb(0x60, 0x64);         /* write Controller Command Byte */
                udelay(50);
                kb_wait();
                udelay(50);
                outb(0x14, 0x60);         /* set "System flag" */
                udelay(50);
                kb_wait();
                udelay(50);
                outb(0xfe, 0x64);         /* pulse reset low */
                udelay(50);
        }

Thanks,

-Truxton
