It's on my TODO list, I've found out that it seems to be a problem caused
by the configuration of the FPGA we've attached to the CPU via CSP1, it
seems the CPU isn't able to reboot after the FPGA is configured, resetting
the FPGA configuration (bus interface is in tri-state then, same as
boot-time) at run-time doesn't help. We need to investigate this.

Another related problem is that reboot doesn't call "init 6", the scripts
for runlevel 6 weren't called, so I stick with calling "init 6" .
