Yes, I get the "LinuxBIOS- Wed...booting..." header fine.
My guess it it stomps over something else or quite possible does so
randomly; ISTR getting random lockups when first getting the EPIA-M up
and running again.

That works; s/pci_locate_device/pci_locate_device_on_bus/ for the
firewire bits.

On a separate note, but still related to the EPIA-M, I'm sure I'd found
the appropriate bit to twiddle to make sure the machine auto powers on
always. However I can't find my tree where I did that and I'm failing to
find the details in the datasheet again. Has anyone else done this?
