If I drop into the boot2 prompt, I can't issue a command or key strokes to do a CPU reset of the machine. It would be nice if end-users could do this because there are issues that I've run into in the past (mostly with older releases, e.g. 6.x~7.x), where if there's garbled text that comes across a serial console, it can get a machine stuck on the boot2 prompt and there's no way to either continue the boot (with the default value) or issue a CPU reset.
