I tried this patch from Jay on UX. Yes, I know that it is not needed
there but I wanted to see what will happen (and I would rather prefer to
see generic kernels). Nothing exciting, I am afraid. An attempt to
boot got stuck on "Calibrating delay loop... " with a power switch as
the only option out.

A kernel in exactly the same configuration but without these BIOS changes
boots without a hint of a problem:

.....................
ruffian_init_arch: Skipping window register rewrites.
... Trust DeskStation firmware!
HWRPB cycle frequency bogus. Estimated 599936256 Hz
Console: colour VGA+ 80x25
Calibrating delay loop... 595.59 BogoMIPS
.....................

Any ideas what gives here?

p.s. I did check some configuration variants but until I reversed changes
nothing was of any help
