But the shutdown that is initiated through ACPI is RB_POWEROFF. There
should be no returning from there. What has changed in the code so that
RB_POWEROFF does not immediately call back into acpi_shutdown_final()
which powers off the system?

Anyway, the resume notification could be moved under the "if (state !=
S5)" line right above it if this behavior is legal.
