Phoronix: The Linux 3.0 Kernel Will... Reboot Better?
Beyond file-system cleancache support, a Microsoft Kinect driver, Intel Ivy Bridge support, and various open-source graphics driver improvements, the Linux 3.0 kernel may also reboot your system better. Yes, really...

News to me.
Your aging, security-hole-ridden kernel and low-level user-space would probably appreciate it if you did a yum/apt-get upgrade and rebooted.

Ksplice does all of that work without forcing a reboot.
The article, throughout being rather long and consiting mostly of quotes, doesn't cover the contents of mjg59's blog post to the slightest degree. Michael please try to understand the matter you are posting about, before writing the article.
What? The article was fine.
