Subject: [PATCH v5 6/7] watchdog: alim7101: Register restart handler with kernel restart handler

The kernel core now provides an API to trigger a system restart.
Register with it to restart the system instead of misusing the
reboot notifier.

Signed-off-by: Guenter Roeck <linux@...ck-us.net>
---
v5: Function and variable renames: *notifier -> *handler
v4: Set restart notifier priority to 128.
v3: No change
v2: No change
