3.7 RC1

While testing 3.7 RC1 I discovered that invoking the function orderly_poweroff()
from an interrupt context will trigger an ASSERT(). This was not the case till
recently. The comment preceding the orderly_poweroff() function claims that this
function can be invoked from any context and in the current Hyper-V util driver,
we support host-driven orderly shut down of the guest by invoking this
orderly_poweroff() function in the context of the message callback. This code has
been working for a very long time and it is broken now. Is my assumption that
orderly_poweroff() could be invoked from the interrupt context a wrong assumption?
