Subject: [PATCH RFC 1/5] kernel/reboot: Deprecate register_restart_handler()

There are now two ways to add a handler to the restart_handler_list.
Two ways to do the same thing is bad design, so let's unify on using
the new method register_sys_off_handler() everywhere.

Reasons:
 * The other register_*_handler functions take a callback, this old
   API takes a notifier_block, which makes it confusing with the
   register_*_notifier class of functions.
 * register_sys_off_handler (new API) is a more unified API allowing for
   registering several system off types.
 * The new API has more helpers built around it now, including devm and
   platform helpers.
 * The new API manages the struct notifier_block for us, simplifying using
   code.

Mark register_restart_handler() as deprecated to try to warn off new users
while we finish converting the remaining existing users.
