systemd related.

As various man pages say, all these are actually systemctl aliases

These are legacy commands available for compatibility only.


lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Jul 10 15:38 /sbin/shutdown -> /usr/bin/systemctl
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Jul 10 15:38 /sbin/halt -> /usr/bin/systemctl
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Jul 10 15:38 /sbin/poweroff -> /usr/bin/systemctl

And of course the man page for systemctl makes it more clear:

System Commands

halt
Shut down and halt the system. ...
poweroff
Shut down and power-off the system. ...

reboot [arg]
Shut down and reboot the system. ...


There is also, on the same man page


suspend
Suspend the system. ...

hibernate
Hibernate the system. ...

It reminds me of a similar situation a few years when systemd was first
introduced, just wondering if its a regression.
