I think you're confusing UML with virtual hosting.

With User Mode Linux each user can be given root access to their own virtual
Linux server - it's pretty much the same as having your own dedicated server
although in reality you are sharing the hardware with other people.

You should be able to type:

sudo /sbin/reboot

with UML and you will reboot your own server but not effect anyone else
running on the same machine.

I tried something similar on a mainframe with multiple Linux sessions
running under Z/VM but User Mode Linux does the same thing on ordinary PC
hardware.
