We are using a very recent u-boot.  U-boot for ARMv8, which is what this SoC is
based on, does not have PSCI as far as I can tell.  We (Freescale) plan to 
eventually have an EL3 firmware component that could remain resident for 
u-boot based systems, but it is a roadmap thing and I don't know when
we're going to get it.

So, for now, most straightforward thing is to get reboot functionality is
to expose the reset register via syscon-reboot in the DT...no new driver needed.

Once a PSCI component is available we'll move to it.
