Subject: [PATCH] Revert "ACPI / sleep: pm_power_off needs more sanity checks to be installed"

From: Rafael J. Wysocki <>

Revert commit 3130497f5bab (ACPI / sleep: pm_power_off needs more
sanity checks to be installed) that breaks power ACPI power off on a
lot of systems, because it checks wrong registers.

Fixes: 3130497f5bab (ACPI / sleep: pm_power_off needs more sanity checks to be installed)
Signed-off-by: Rafael J. Wysocki <>

Hi Linus,

Can you take this for 3.14-rc6 directly so that the breakage is not present
in that -rc, please?

I obviously trusted the author of commit 3130497f5bab too much which I shouldn't
have done.  My bad and sorry about this mess.
