i.MX6 Reset Button

Program the reset button

That is exposed to linux as a GPIO key. You can see it in the device-tree here:

1 2 3 4 5 6 arch/arm/boot/dts/imx6qdl-cubox-i.dtsi pinctrl_gpio_key: gpio-key { fsl,pins = < MX6QDL_PAD_EIM_DA8__GPIO3_IO08 0x17059 >; };

If you want you can customize this to look like a custom button. https://github.com/SolidRun/linux-stable/blob/linux-4.9.y-imx6/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/input/gpio-keys.txt

Then you would need to write a userspace daemon to listen for the key event and then perform whatever action you wanted depending on the length it was held down for.
