Ostensibly, nothing.  It owns no resources, so shouldn't affect the cluster.  

A worst-case scenario would be the active node crashing while the passive node is rebooting, but there's nothing you can do about that.

Rebooting a Passive server should have zero impact on the Active server.  

And even if you lost the Active server while the Passive server was rebooting, you'll be surprised how robust Microsoft clustering is.

Reboot away.
