Have you tried this? It's a symlink, but systemctl knows to act
differently when called as shutdown, and the traditional use still
works. No need to hack around anything — just use 'shutdown -r' as

In Fedora at least, note that +1 is actually the _default_ — I think
that's true in EL7 as well but I don't have a system handy to check.
See `man shutdown` for more.

And `man systemd.time` for the time formats.
