10 is a very early POST code from linuxbios, I would guess that the 
hardware is in a funny state. 

First, for reboot, we should be planning in the long term to use kexec. 
Second, for hard reset, I had patches long ago for power off and reset. I 
had stopped working on them because I assumed by now that linux would have 
native support (via ACPI or similar) for real hardware reset via the 
chipset. I was wrong. 

perhaps I need to revive my old code for newer linux.
