SubjectRe: [PATCH] ARM: machine_power_off should not return
Let's Cc: LAKML, and To: Russell.

Russell, any comments on this?

Without this patch we got the heartbeat's reboot_notifier called twice while
testing the recent hibernation patches, which was unexpected and produced a
kernel panic: https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/3/19/363

Instead of fixing the heartbeat LED trigger, or the hibernation code, it
seems better to fix the ARM machine_power_off, as it's not supposed to return.
