[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Bug#460085: initscripts: checkroot.sh calls "reboot -f" instead of kexec

Package: initscripts
Version: 2.86.ds1-38.1
Severity: normal

reboot -f

is called in several places from within checkroot.sh.
But if the user decided to install & use kexec, wouldn't calling 

kexec -f

be the better choice?
