So you didn't actually looked at acpi_bus_get_power_flags() that set the
power.states.flags.valid flag, because If you had looked at it, you would
have seen that that's not the case.
No, we don't set the valid flag for devices that aren't power manageable
(i.e. have flags.power_manageable unset), which is the *whole* *point* of

No, the original acpi_device_set_power() will return -ENODEV then, but
in my opinion returning -EINVAL is more accurate, because "power
manageable" means "you can change power state of it".
