nope, not that i've heard of.  the time spent by the OS in rebooting is
neglible compared to the time required by the hardware.  so shutdown -r now
is still a good option to use and you just have to bear with the (very) long
time it takes to reboot.

it's somewhat annoying that we have 2450s that take between 3-8 minutes to
reboot compared to some no-name servers that have a complete reboot cycle of
< 30 seconds.
