Reboot your Arch-linux running computer early, in case some vital component failed to initialize (a.k.a. e1000e_fsckup_initcpio)

Ok, so this is embarrassingly primitive, but so that I don't loose it (again), I put this small script on github. Maybe someone else having a problem with things not initializing properly on every boot can find the concept useful: I have a computer based on a “DFI LanParty Mini-ITX P55-T36” motherboard with an integrated Intel Gigabit interface. Which works fine so far, but always fails to initialize networking on the first bootup after power-on. This is obviously inconvenient for unattended operation.

To fix this once and for all and reboot the computer early, feel free to use the code at
