an orderly /sbin/reboot usually works, if your process is still running
after a minute, do a sync and forcibly reboot via the kernel.

how to forcibly reboot a linux server:
   enable sysrq:
     echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq

     reboot:    echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger
     poweroff:  echo o > /proc/sysrq-trigger
