Yes, on the pi3 it takes about 2-3s, but on a regular x86 machine it
should take <2s.

I've been arguing against MS Windows' misdesign to reboot the system
on configuration changes. But from a stali perspective I kind of
prefer rebooting the system for the prize of avoiding a daemon or
runlevel management. It's simpler and it also makes you "configuring"
a system less.

"Configuring" is always an indicator of suckiness.
