    Seems to cause a regression. On the affected kernels (e.g., 3.1.5,
    3.1.6, and 3.2-rc7) the patch has exactly the opposite of what you'd
    expect --- the affected machines automatically power on a few minutes
    after shutdown if and only if the patch is applied.

    The affected machines all seem to be Toshiba Portege laptops.

    Antonio-M. Corbi Bellot: Toshiba Portege R500
    Marco Santos: Toshiba Portege Z830
    Christophe Vu-Brugier: Toshiba Portege R830

    Christophe tried reverting the above patch and the symptoms went away.
    See for details. Please consider
    reverting the patch from stable until this is resolved.
