My first thought was that writing to "power_off" would actually turn
the power off, which isn't true. Maybe something like
"poweroff_allowed" would work.

I think there's only one use of this new field, in
pci_pm_runtime_suspend(). Maybe you could pull out that hunk from
patch 5, combine it with this one, and move it to after patch 5?

This name definitely doesn't suggest anything useful I think
"poweroff_allowed" or similar would make a lot more sense when reading
the code.
