Laptop's name : Dell Inc. Precision M6600
Reboot stopped working with kernel 3.2.
Adding reboot=pci fixes reboot.
I guess a patch would look like that :

Did this work in any version of Linux before 3.2?
If so, what is the latest version that worked?

please attach the output from dmidecode

BTW. there are a bunch of ACPI EC errors in your dmesg.
It might be a good idea to file a separate bug on them.
Comment 2 tblanchard.bug 2012-02-16 13:14:37 UTC
Reboot worked fine before 3.2.
Kernel 3.1 is the lastest version that works.

This patch works for me, the laptop reboots fine without reboot=pci now.

I'll add the new dmesg output just in case.
