This will also break old DTBs that don't have a "syscon-poweroff" device
node that contains the necessary PMU regmap, offset and mask information.

Is true that select should only be used for non-visible symbols but there
are others user visible symbols that are selected by ARCH_EXYNOS such as
EXYNOS_THERMAL. So I think selecting the regmap syscon reset stuff there
is a sensible option.
