The registered restart handlers are called in (descending) priority
order. This driver registers as 128, but conceivably there could be
some super-board-specific restart mechanism that can register itself as
higher priority than this and it will be attempted first.

If PS_HOLD doesn't work, the lower priority restart handlers will
continue to be called, including the watchdog, which is registering with
the lowest priority (0).
