There is an interest to have reset reason exported on other ZII hardware
as well.

I think that trying to make this generic is purely synthetic. This
information is board-specific per it's nature, it comes from what board
is designed for, different boards have quite different sets of possible
reset reasons. What is needed is - pass this board-specific information
to board-specific user space.

What's proper API for that, if not a sysfs attribute?
