I had a look at it with Flo and it seems that it is caused by init not
being PID 1 wich makes the reboot fail. From reboot_system.c:

142: /* Now we send the signal to init and wait... */
143: fprintf(stderr, _("Sending signal to `init' to initiate system start...\n"));
144: kill(1, SIGHUP);
145:  sleep(15);
