[patch 023/104] x86: more general identifier for Phoenix BIOS

From: Greg KH
Date: Wed Dec 03 2008 - 14:59:47 EST

2.6.27-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Philipp Kohlbecher <xt28@xxxxxx>

commit 0af40a4b1050c050e62eb1dc30b82d5ab22bf221 upstream.

Impact: widen the reach of the low-memory-protect DMI quirk

Phoenix BIOSes variously identify their vendor as "Phoenix Technologies,
LTD" or "Phoenix Technologies LTD" (without the comma.)

This patch makes the identification string in the bad_bios_dmi_table
more general (following a suggestion by Ingo Molnar), so that both
versions are handled.

Again, the patched file compiles cleanly and the patch has been tested
successfully on my machine.
