Hi, persmule. I figured ssh would probably work, but I only have this
one laptop readily available. Good to know that this worked, though.
TIMTOWTDI is usually a good thing, especially here.

Are you booting linux 4.3 or higher? If so, can you please confirm that
with libreboot d48086382951072039226a8cbde1d9d009cfad12 the year is
correct after a boot? Also, is suspend working for you?
