    Just a reminder: before you guys go and wander off into the woods of
    hypothetical with this, please make sure this use case is relevant
    enough for the trouble. The only real reason given so far AFAICT was RAS
    and to be able to offline BSP in order to prolong system life before
    maintenance.

    When you take it down for maintenance eventually, you don't need to
    suspend but simply poweroff.

    Or...
