Tool for remotely rebooting a computer

'fallback-reboot' is a last resort, when you need to remotely reboot a computer. It maximizes its ability to get the job done by completely avoiding touching the hard disk; it does not opens any files, it does not fork or exec, and it locks itself into memory to avoid swapping/paging. It includes optional cryptography.
