Yes, but this doesn't seem to be ever called anyways. (in arch/alpha)
And, BTW, letting it point to machine_power_off() doesn't make much
sense, since it's the arch's machine_power_off() function, who're
calling pm_power_off().

Actually, we could remove pm_power_off completely from here, assuming
nobody would *build* any drivers that register themselves into
pm_power_off.

If you feel better with it, I could post a patch that just removes
pm_power_off from arch/alpha.
