I have a Dell XPS M1330, and GRUB_BUTTON_CMOS_ADDRESS=85:3 works also for me.

However, I do have one question.

I have it set up now to boot directly into Linux when I use the main power-on
button, and I use the auxiliary button to get a boot menu, defaulting
to Windows.  But when I boot Windows using that button, it starts up
a MediaDirect setup screen (in addition to regular Windows).  Would it be
possible to (optionally) clear the vendor power-on button bit in the
cmos before booting?
