Boxes has implemented such a restart count mechanism to try to detect
when an installation is done. I think it puts
<on_reboot>destroy</on_reboot> in the VM XML configuration in order to
be properly notified when a VM reboots.

libosinfo has an "installer-reboots" attribute for some of the
installers it knows of.
