Why should there be a finite delay? I think a much better option
is wait for the user to press a key before rebooting. When I was
working with oskit-mach I was lazy so I just put a "hlt" instruction
in panic so I would have to manually reset the machine to reboot.
But it did give me unlimited time to examine the error messages.
