[PATCH] Add emergency_restart()
Eric W. Biederman [Tue, 26 Jul 2005 17:29:55 +0000 (11:29 -0600)]
When the kernel is working well and we want to restart cleanly
kernel_restart is the function to use.   But in many instances
the kernel wants to reboot when thing are expected to be working
very badly such as from panic or a software watchdog handler.

This patch adds the function emergency_restart() so that
callers can be clear what semantics they expect when calling
restart.  emergency_restart() is expected to be callable
from interrupt context and possibly reliable in even more
trying circumstances.

This is an initial generic implementation for all architectures.
