Not all boards follow the reference design, that's a fact of life.
Please look at the i.MX6Q reference manual. The sequence implemented in
this patchset can be found as a valid way to power off the system in
"60.4.3 Power mode transitions" "Normal ON to OFF with external PMIC",
so there is hardly any way to argue that this is a board specific
quirk. This is one of the Freescale/NXP recommended sequences to turn
off the system.
