play_dead currently can't handle memory being overwritten, i guess you'd
probably want to put the hook to kill the processor for real there. We
probably only have to make sure that MTRRs are restored on resume, which
should be taken care of by the current code since ACPI hotplug probably
requires it too.

Sounds like a perfect candidate =)
