If I need to know ,how many times the system has been rebooted , Shall
I use mount count value (tune2fs -l )?

>From below it says, warning message will be displayed  when it equals
the maximum mount count .
What happens after that ,is mount count value reset back to 0 ?

Is there any command available to check how many times system has been rebooted?

"Mount Count and Maximum Mount Count
    Together these allow the system to determine if the file system
should be fully checked. The mount count is incremented each time the
file system is mounted and when it equals the maximum mount count the
warning message ``maximal mount count reached, running e2fsck is
recommended'' is displayed"
