reboot = just enqueue a job for reboot.target.

reboot-force = Just set m->exit_code to MANAGER_REBOOT. This will cause
the systemd event loop to terminate immeidately as your code returns
control to it, and then results in a reboot.

reboot-immediate = invoke reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_RESTART) right-away.
