Bug Description

When we use ironic, we can't reboot a bare metal instance with a graceful shutdown.
We execute "nova reboot" command without "--hard" option. However, it performs a hard reboot.

I'm not sure this is a bug. You asked to reboot an instance and the instance rebooted.

I don't know that hard and soft reboot make sense in ironic

This is pretty clearly operating as intended:

There are changes in progress to support soft reboot via ACPI (or similar)
