Bear in mind I don't know much about the embedded or platform code!

The documentation for reset notifiers says that they are expected
to be registered from drivers, not arch code. That seems to only be
intended to mean that the standard ISA or platform reset would
normally be handled directly by the arch, whereas if you have an
arch specific driver for a reset hardware that just happens to live
under arch/, then fsl_rstcr_restart / mpc85xx_cds_restart would be
valid use of reset notifier.

So this change seems reasonable to me. One small question:

Should there be a header with #define's for these priorities?
