Ah, my bad, I used --compose option with git-send-email and did composed 
the message, somehow it got missed. Will take care.

The motivation came when I tried to used reboot/poweroff on exynos7, and 
since exynos7 has not added/enabled PMU and does not have access to 
arch/arm/mach-exynos, so option are to have a reboot/restart driver or 
we move pmu.c out of mach-exynos. I know there where some effort in past 
to move pmu.c to drivers, but I feel that is still WIP.
And then I came across this generic syscon regmap based driver which are 
already in place, so just used it.
Hope that helps.
