10 is a very early POST code from linuxbios, I would guess that the
hardware is in a funny state.
First, for reboot, we should be planning in the long term to use kexec.
Second, for hard reset, I had patches long ago for power off and reset. I
had stopped working on them because I assumed by now that linux would have
native support (via ACPI or similar) for real hardware reset via the
chipset. I was wrong.
perhaps I need to revive my old code for newer linux.
