ctrl-alt-del activity set to reboot on s390 does not reboot
This document (7016964) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
In YaST --> Security and Users --> Security Center and Hardening --> Boot Settings the "Interpretation of Ctrl-Alt-Del" can be set to 'ignore', 'reboot' or 'halt'.
When 'reboot is selected on s390x the system doesn't reboot, instead 'SIGNAL SHUTDOWN' results in a clean shutdown.
It was never meant to be used any other way, although in previous versions Ctrl-Alt-Del in /etc/inittab used 'shutdown -r' instead of 'shutdown -h' and rebooted instead.
