This seems a big hacky.

Is there no way to simply make acpi_ec_suspend() smarter while going
to sleep? Instead of just unconditionally disabling every EC GPE, can
we see that "this gpe is the power botton" somehow?

Disabling the power button event sounds fundamentally broken, and it
sounds like Windows doesn't do that. I doubt Windows has some hacky
whitelist. So I'd rather fix a deeper issue than have these kinds of
hacks, if at all possible.
