Day-0 Command Example - Reboot a Controller

Simple command to reboot a controller.  Implements all the same options as the 'reboot' CLI command except '-d <dump_string>'.  (All the documented options, anyway.)

I found in testing that the reboot didn't actually happen even though the command was successfully passed to OnTap via SSH and executed by the controller when I didn't use the -t MinutesToWait option.  I think this -t option is required if your controller uses CIFS, FC, or iSCSI.

I built this command because I'm using it in a workflow to activate a new load of OnTap software.

Comments and suggestions welcome!
