 Hello, I just noticed this PR in the bug database, and I wanted to
 add that I've observed the same thing on my IBM PC Server 315, that
 it will not reboot without cycling the power.
 It's not a problem for me really, because FreeBSD is stable enough
 that I've never found a need to reboot the system remotely or under
 automation for any reason.  Nonetheless, it is strange, and probably
 just due to weird IBM hardware, because....
 It does the same thing in other operating systems.  Just for the
 purpose of experiment, I tried rebooting it in Microsoft Windows,
 and it behaves the same.  In fact, the only operating system I've
 seen that *can* warm boot the PC Server 315 is MS-DOS -- the old
 Ctrl-Alt-Del works.  So this would appear to most definitely not
 be caused by FreeBSD.
 Anyway, just thought the problem report maintainer might want to
 hear that.  Wouldn't you expect after all that the most non-standard
 hardware in the IBM-compatible world is made by IBM?  ;-)
