    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
