Yes. I looked at bit closer to the problem mention with power off.
xen_efi_reset_system cannot be a NOP because there may not be fallback
alternatives (see machine_power_off in arch/arm64/kernel/process.c)

So I think we would have to translate EFI_RESET* to Xen SHUTDOWN_* and
then call HYPERVISOR_sched_op directly.

I will send a new version soon.

Cheers,
