Where does machine_restart map in the IMX8M kernel sources?

I'm using the Sumo release on an IMX8MQ.  Could any one please point me to the imx8m-specific function called by machine_restart()? 


I thought it was mxc_reset() in arch/arm/mach-imx/system.c, but inserting a #error in that function doesn't break the build.  That's a pity, because mxc_reset()  does exactly what I want: force WDOG1 to fire the system reset signal.


The machine_restart() in arch/arm64/kernel/process.c references two "possible suspects":

1. the pointer arm_pm_restart

2. the function do_kernel_restart()


arm_pm_restart appears to be set in the xen/enlighten.c, but that quickly led to the deferencing of a jump table that I haven't been able to find yet.


On the other hand, do_kernel_restart() appears to walk a list of registered reset handlers, none of which look  like they would reset the platform.


Any light that anyone could throw on this would be much appreciated!


Thanks & Regards,
