I am sorry I didn't catch this the last time. Do you need to call
unregister here? Looks like trigger is going away with a registered
reboot notifier. Might be fine, since reboot is going to happen.

Yes I agree that init should still succeed. It might be helpful to throw
out a kernel message when this occurs though since register shouldn't
fail unless there is an error.

Yes keeping state is probably required to unregister conditionally.
Since unregistering is safe (simply returns -ENOENT) when called after
register fails. So I would think you can call unregister even when
register fails.
