I think Pandora should still start up fine on charger connect except
after you do a poweroff first?

And my guess is Pandora would not stay powered off earlier after you
did poweroff but would start up again immediately instead.

If something has changed with the default start up events, then
it must be some separate issue. This is because we configure the start
up events only in twl4030_power_off() when poweroff is called, so those
are not touched during the init time.

BTW, the reason why things changed for device tree based booting is
because we're now configuring the PMIC for PM features while for
legacy booting that was only done for n900.
