Let me reply to your comment from that email:

I had asked Jonas to do it in the watchdog driver because that driver is
the place that handles this particular register. We have moved a bunch
of restart handlers into drivers/power for similar reasons, and those
can also be compiled out. The restart handler isn't actually essential
for most operations, and we have moved some far more important drivers
from arch/arm into drivers/, such as clocks, interrupts, timers etc.

The restart handler in this case is the only piece of code that remains in
mach-moxart, and I would really like it to be completely empty.
