Poweroff still doesn't work with beta4. SE7500WV2 needs a
working ACPI for poweroff. Turning off ACPI is not a solution
for this bug.
hjl: I am confused how the patches attached to this bug would fix poweroff,

you boot with acpi=on.
Every test box I've tried so far refuses to power off with acpi, so this bug is
still very much alive.
