Reset opcode?

Hello,

 

I have to implement a mechanism in my software to reset MPC5604B when my program goes in an unused memory area.

 

Actually I've padded whole my unused flash with the following pattern: 0xDEAD.

 

With this solution, when the program goes in a section padded with this pattern, the program stop and my watchdog reset the MPC5604B.

 

My question is: Is an opcode exist to reset directly the microcontroller? or an opcode jump to the begin of my application?

 

I wish to pad directly with an opcode which permit to reset directly the MPC and don't wait the reset with my watchdog.

 

I sought in the BOOK_EUM.pdf of the PowerPc architecture to know if an opcode permit to reset the MPC, but I didn't find it.

 

Does this opcode exist?

 

Thanks for your support.
