.SH NAME
coldreboot \- Force a cold reboot bypassing kexec-tools default
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B /sbin/coldreboot
.B [reboot options]

.SH DESCRIPTION
.B coldreboot
is a script that forces a cold reboot regardless of whether kexec is enabled
or not in /etc/default/kexec.
.B coldreboot
takes the same arguments as /sbin/reboot and passes them on to /sbin/reboot
later.

.SH NOTES
.PP
.B coldreboot
prevents a kexec kernel from being loaded automatically and thus
forces a cold reboot. If the user loads a kexec kernel by hand,
.B coldreboot
will still result in a kexec reboot.
