I am not sure what your basis for this statement is.

First, let me look at the GPIO question.
 - The pxa_restart() function was changed to use REBOOT_GPIO instead of
   'g'.

 - The tosa_poweroff() and spitz_poweroff() functions were changed to
   pass REBOOT_GPIO instead of 'g' to pxa_restart().

 - The "SHARP Tosa" machine description was setting restart_mode to 'g',
   and setting the restart function to tosa_restart() which ignored the
   'g' so I eliminated setting restart_mode to 'g' in the first place.

 - The equivalent held true for the "SHARP Spitz", "SHARP Borzoi", and
   "SHARP Akita" machines.

 - I see no other uses of 'g' for a mode being passed to a restart
   function.

Second, the restart_mode = 's' cases:
 - The "EBSA110" machine was setting it, but ebsa110_restart does not use
   the reboot mode parameter so I eliminated it.

 - The "Chalice-CATS" machine was converted from setting restart_mode = 's'
   to setting reboot_mode = REBOOT_WARM and footbridge_restart was converted
   to checking for REBOOT_WARM.

 - The "MIO A701" machine was setting it, but the mioa701_restart() function
   does not use the parameter so I eliminated it.

Of the 418 machines with ".restart =" being set, there are 73 uniq
functions being utilized.  Here is the summary of those functions:

Callers to pxa_restart were converted as follows:
 - corgi_poweroff(), corgi_restart(), and poodle_poweroff() were converted
   from passing 'h' to passing REBOOT_COLD.

 - mioa701_poweroff() and mioa701_restart() were converted from passing
   's' to passing REBOOT_WARM.

 - As discussed above, tosa_poweroff() and spitz_poweroff() were converted
  from using 'g' to passing REBOOT_GPIO.

>From the above list, no other functions which utilized the mode
parameter were found being called from anything other than their machine
desription's .restart callout.

I _THOUGHT_ I had checked each and every one fairly thoroughly to
ensure all callers were converted as appropriate to pass in REBOOT_COLD,
REBOOT_WARM, or REBOOT_GPIO instead of 'h', 's', or 'g'.  It was a lot of
code to look over with no strong familiarity so I likely missed something,
but I did put an honest effort into doing this right.  If you could point
to a specific problem, I will address it.

Thanks,
Robin
