How do you actually want to reboot?  At one time, I had modified
the kernel "gorom()" function to simply jump into the boot rom as
if a reset occurred.  I should make this work again for many reasons.

If you really want the hard reset, which in some cases on some
designs will reset some external hardware sometimes, then the
checkstop reset will do the trick.  This is often confused with
performing a hard reset function, which really isn't the same thing.

I will dig up the code for both cases.
