FWIW, Tegra typically does use an MMIO register as well. See
drivers/soc/tegra/pmc.c:tegra_pmc_restart_notify(). I don't know what
HTC does, but if it's writing somewhere in RAM it isn't using the
standard way of resetting the SoC. There's early boot ROM code which I
think evaluates the PMC_SCRATCH0 register on Tegra to determine which
mode to boot into. That's before even any firmware gets the chance of
doing anything.
