Linux, force immediate reboot from terminal

The standard

shutdown -r now

or

reboot

Usually work fine from the terminal. However in some cases a more brute force approach is necessary. The following command is the equivalent to pressing the reset button.

WARNING: Use at your own risk. This command does not shut down the machine carefully, it will reset the machine!!!

echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger
