Yeah, IMHO there's quite a bit of code in sysdev/ which in ideal world
would go into drivers/ and I think fsl_rstcr_restart is among it
(similar example on MIPS is drivers/power/reset/brcmstb-reboot.c).

I don't have any strong preference either way, I do however think that
introducing such #define should go into a separate patch-set, since
you'd probably want to propagate that change across all of the users
of the API.
