Nice, this allows to do the reset with almost no code. The only thing
which might be a problem is the priority: I used 192 since 128 is
already used by the watchdog driver. Maybe we can change that
syscon-reboot is a bit above watchdogs by default, or maybe even a dt
property? I will try to use that driver for v2. Thx!
