Tested, and with this patch it reboots fine.

I booted without the patch, and it failed to reboot.

I added the patch, booted it, checked if I had the right kernel with
uname, and then rebooted. It rebooted fine.

Went back, removed the patch, rebuilt and rebooted. Tried to reboot,
and it failed again.
