Darn. You have a point there.

Hmm. Good point. I hadn't considered that. I am now certain
it only exists when CONFIG_PM is set.

Thinking about it more I probably want to simply have a
kernel_power_off_shutdown(); common factor and call
that instead of device_shutdown().

Ok some sleep and then I will see if I can better version of this
