If we can't go with the DT approach, my preference would be to go with a
bootconfig and sysfs for controlling the mappings, although I don't
think userspace need/should control the mappings of cmd -> cookies.

I wanted to check if you are okay with proceeding with the reboot-mode
DT bindings approach unless we have some other better standard? If yes,
do you have any preference based on Konrad's comment [1]? I can send out
v3 with the couple comments from Dmitry and Krzysztof's addressed.

Thanks,
Elliot
