This sounds like way too much work. I would do the following:

mv /sbin/shutdown /sbin/shutdown.orig

and then create a batch file named /sbin/shutdown as to following:

/usr/hdlc/utils/et5reset   0
#/usr/hdlc/utils/et5reset   2        when you add another board

Another solution is to enable the "memory sharing" option in the config file
for the board. This will cause the shared memory window to be enabled only
when the memory is being accessed. There is a little overhead, but not much.
You may be using this to put multiple boards at the same address when you
add more boards anyway.
