I tested poweroff, shutdown, and reboot with various reboot_type on a few different platforms. I haven't seen poweroff and reboot issues after CPU0 is offline.

Do you have specific platforms that I can test poweroff and reboot dependency on CPU0? Or we just assume there are some platforms out there that depend on CPU0 for poweroff/reboot?

Thanks.
