The point being: 3 out of 10000 is too much.
If that changes from "panic" to "all systems reboot almost
instantly, every 3 out of 10000 boots" then I would be fine with
it. If you have a million new users, 300 of them would hit the
bad case on their first boot, so it would have to be handled in a
If you have one device and reboot every day, you would hit the
bad case once every 9 years, on average. If you have an embedded
device that the user turn on and off many times per day, it's
likely that the user-accessible power switch would actually
suspend the device rather than rebooting it, so it could go a very
long time without hitting the double-reboot case.
