I am actually at Microsoft right now, and I managed to get
clarification on how Windows deals with this: Windows will attempt to
use ACPI reboot first, and will only attempt to use anything else if
that fails. EFI reset is actually its least preferred option, and so
it is highly likely that it is untested on most of the shipping x86
hardware if any of the other methods work.

So let's not touch this.
