What I fail to gather from your response, especially from

is if you really have kexec-tools uninstalled but "normal" binaries
like /sbin/reboot are still redirected to some kexec's program?
Is that the case?
Or you mean that you have managed to break out of the kernel-only
reboot cycle, all is well and the bug may be closed? ;-)
