Default Bug#586133: Boot process pauses indefinitely waiting for keyboard activity

One more test: is the behavior any different if you supply idle=mwait on
the kernel command line?

Ping. Are you still interested in pursuing this? (If the answer
is "no", that's fine, but please do let us know so we can stop
tracking it.)

Looks like a fun one.

Bob, Kushal: ping?

Sorry again about the slow response before.

Sorry for not responding earlier. I think this one is a wild goose
chase at least in my case it was like that. Also, I don't have access
to the system anymore exhibiting the problem. Most likely this seems
to be a BIOS/Firmware bug.

Thanks.

If I remember correctly there have been bugs like this before (e.g.,
broken DSDT putting the EC in an unpleasant state) which could be
worked around by the kernel. Sorry we didn't get to it in time.
Do you remember what make and model that machine had?

Bob?

Thanks,
Jonathan
