yes, I recall that when I proposed putting this kind of mother-board
specific stuff in Linux, at the first linuxbios summit in 2005, people
were ready to shoot me. This is the kind of stuff that has appeared in
the OLPC kernel. And, it makes ports of other OSes -- in my case, Plan
9 and Inferno -- a major pain in the neck. Doable, but not at all fun.
