Then the design decision is broken :)

I see it as fairly serious bug that shutdown would not be able
to reboot the system after it caused random number of stuff
to happen.

In the point the rc.shutdown script would be stuck, the system
might not be in state to do something actually usefull with it.
I don't think that answer 'so run reboot when shutdown hangs'
is viable.

SIGKILL is really too much, should have used SIGINT - this bit should
be fixed.
