Description of problem:
This is on a Dell Inspriron 8000
The system does not auto power off at shutdown. When hitting the power button on
the laptop a Kernel Panic appears:
md: stopping all md devices.
flushing ide devices: hda hdb
Then upon pressing the power button:

<0>Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login as root
2. Type in: halt
3. Kernel indicates: System halted
4. Press the power button
Actual Results: Kernel Panic with above output
Expected Results: The laptop should power off.
This worked fine under Redhat 8.0
When the kernel is booted with acpi=off the system will power off as expected.
does this get fixed if you add acpi=off to the kernel commandline (eg the
vmlinuz line in /boot/grub/grub.conf) ?
Yes it does, see my comment at the end of the bug report
When the kernel is booted with acpi=off the system will power off (without
crashing) as expected.

I have seen this kernel panic on my Sony Vaio FXA36 Athlon laptop as well.
That panic is *in your bios*, if I'm reading the EIP right.
It happens on Inspiron 4150 too
I get a similar kernel panic on *bootup*, (apparently) since (after) having
edited my grub.conf
to _enable_ poweroff. [Bug 80360]
CPU:AMD THUNDERBIRD 1000 Mhz/266Mhz CPU
Motherboard ASUS ATX A7V-E/550
BIOS: Award, Rev. 1004
This bug looks like it's closely related with bug 80395
Oops output is slightly different, causes are the same.
Any newer kernels in rawhide that would likely fix this issue?
