I don't see why we should make this change. kernel/reboot.c handles
this function returning, so other places should do too.

Even on x86, this function can return:

void machine_power_off(void)
{
machine_ops.power_off();
}

.power_off = native_machine_power_off,

static void native_machine_power_off(void)
{
if (pm_power_off) {
if (!reboot_force)
machine_shutdown();
pm_power_off();
}
/* A fallback in case there is no PM info available */
tboot_shutdown(TB_SHUTDOWN_HALT);
}

void tboot_shutdown(u32 shutdown_type)
{
void (*shutdown)(void);

if (!tboot_enabled())
return;

Therefore, I'd say... it's a bug in the hibernation code - or we probably
have many buggy architectures. I'd suggest fixing the hibernation code
rather than stuffing some workaround like an endless loop into every
architecture.
