x86: Don't use the EFI reboot method by default
Matthew Garrett [Wed, 6 Jul 2011 20:52:37 +0000 (16:52 -0400)]
Testing suggests that at least some Lenovos and some Intels will
fail to reboot via EFI, attempting to jump to an unmapped
physical address. In the long run we could handle this by
providing a page table with a 1:1 mapping of physical addresses,
but for now it's probably just easier to assume that ACPI or
legacy methods will be present and reboot via those.
