Thanks. Can you do it for amd64 too? In return I'll fix the linux futex cas
thing that I mentioned. ;-)
Maybe triple fault doesn't work on smp systems, and reboot gets run on
!cpu0. The keyboard controller isn't emulated properly on a lot of recent
systems so I wouldn't be surprised if that method doesn't work.
