Are they connected together? I got the impression that RST# is the
PCI reset and that INIT# comes from somewhere else. I think you
mentioned that RST was constant while INIT had a changing signal
during boot, but maybe I just remember wrong.

Good point. It may be a hack like a pull-up because it doesn't come
with the full timer switch circuit.

Me too, sorry I can't offer anything but speculation.
