Ubuntu “reboot” on Supermicro X9SCI/X9SCA shuts down

On two recent Supermicro servers, typing reboot actually shuts down the server. Thanks to Google and this blogpost, major.io/2013/06/03/supermicro-x9scix9sca-server-does-a-shutdown-rather-than-a-reboot/ no longer have this issue.

Short story: just blacklist the module named “mei” and you’re good.
