I am testing 5.2.1 in preperation for moving production servers

there is one that I cannot get to work - shutdown -r now. Rebooting
dies consistently. With the GENERIC kernel I get the message:

Keyboard reset did not work, attempting CPU shutdown

In NOTES is a dexcription of BROKEN_KEYBOARD_RESET so I added that and
rebuilt the kernel. Now all I get is the Rebooting... line and nothing
more. Granted the system I am using for testing is not at all like the
production hardware, but rebooting worked fine on 4.6 with this system.
I am very reluctant to convert any production systems unless I can be
sure they can successfully be rebooted without having a person on-site.
These machines are all unattended and quite far away. Is there a
workaround for this issue?

Try toggeling hw.acpi.disable_on_poweroff with sysctl.

Setting both the BROKEN_KEYBOARD_RESET and hw.acpi.disable_on_powerff to 0 fixed my problem. Now the systems reboot properly.
