Work around Dell E520 BIOS reboot bug
Force Dell E520 to use the BIOS to shutdown/reboot. I have at least one report that this patch fixes shutdown/reboot problems on the Dell E520 platform. (Andi says: People can always set the boot option. It hardly seems like a critical issue needing a backport.)
