Some background why we need this command line parameter. Command line
parameter reset_devices was introduced in kernel versions 2.6.19. The
intention of this parameter is that driver needs to first do a software
reset of the underlying device and then go ahead with rest of the
initialization.

This will help initializing the devices while second kernel is booting.
That's why we need to pass this parameter to second kernel commandline.

Though there does not seem to be any user of this parameter so far in
the kernel, I am expecting that down the line we will have.

Thanks
Vivek
