No, the machine WILL be reset, don't forget that, no matter what we do,
after 10s, there will be a hardware enforced reboot.

I think, the only reasonable thing to do would be to sync all *NON-NFS*
filesystems (sync on NFS an block..), then halt. I don't think there's
enough time to trying to umount filesystems. There could be more harm
done if the machine is rebooted exactly WHILE a filesystem is unmounted...

Don't bother to reboot yourself, you can't stop the hardware from
rebooting itself as well..
