Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't see anything related to SMM in the
BIOS menus. However, the system has real-time constraints. Thus, I'd
turn SMM off if I knew how :-)

Good suggestion. I'm using sysvinit-2.86
http://freshmeat.net/projects/sysvinit/

AFAIU, poweroff is equivalent to halt -p

halt (no option) calls reboot(RB_HALT);
poweroff or halt -p calls reboot(RB_POWER_OFF);
man 2 reboot

Alas, when I run 'poweroff' the kernel prints the same information:

Halting.
Shutdown: hdc
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:01:05.0 disabled
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:01:04.0 disabled
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:01:03.0 disabled
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:01:02.0 disabled
Power down.
acpi_power_off called
Regards.
