automatically restart computer after upgrades requiring a reboot

Bug Description

Landscape clients should be able to automatically reboot a machine after applying updates, instead of simply alerting that it requires a reboot.

Landscape currently reports when a computer requires a reboot after applying updates, however this alert is delayed by some minutes following upgrades and there is no option to request an automatic reboot after applying upgrades.

In many situations, users patching security issues would like to simply reboot when completed. By way of example, this option is available from the unattended-upgrades package.

This request is for Landscape Dedicated Server, however I don't see any reason the implementation would end up being specific. Mentioning just in case.

Note sometimes there is no real need to reboot (e.g. kernel updated but issues is already livepatched) or sometimes the need is triggered by manual actions. Seems to me like this is a reasonable request, but it's something I'd see as a separate profile (reboot profile?) instead of adding to the existing package profiles. Just a though though.
