I'm not entirely sure how reboot can fail "out of the blue" (i.e. if
it's known to work on a platform it should probably continue to work on
that platform), but if it were to fail I guess the end user would end up
having to perform a manual reset.
Part of the problem here is that the reboot call is in the general exit
case; trying to move it before UI exit would require major surgery on
the existing UI exit handling code (and still not catch every corner
case, such as a crash in petitboot itself).
