(In reply to Chris Hutchinson from comment #19)
The latest patch is for 14-CURRENT. It works here except for a bug which I
cannot track down. The bug is that after waking the machine the next time you
do a halt -p the machine will reboot if the machine hasn't been rebooted using
reboot in the mean time. It appears that some kind of status bit has been set
in the NIC that when the machine powers itself off the first time after being
woken it powers itself back on again. Only that once and only if there haven't
been any reboots prior to that.

Otherwise this patch would have been committed long ago.

Please apply the patch and let me know if you experience this or if it is
simply my laptop that has this problem. (My laptop doesn't experience this when
booted from Windows 10 or Fedora, only with the patch I cobbled up for
FreeBSD.)
