HW reduced only platforms are still required to support sleep
states that on arm64 are totally meaningless at present, so I do
not think ACPI_REDUCED_HARDWARE_ONLY will cut it.

Factoring out power_off methods from sleep.c ? I know, it is not nicer
since you split the S-states management in multiple files.

Side note: is the acpi_suspend() function in sleep.c used in the kernel ?
