AFAIK that's not proper fencing. SunOS once had a "fasthalt" command. In Linux "halt -nf" might do a similar thing, or maybe trigger a reboot via sysrq (echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger).

Fencing is everything but a clean shutdown. The specific problem is that shutdown may be performed asynchronously, so the command finishes, but the system is still in progress of shutting down (which may hang indefinitely).
