I can't compile this, I guess because of a dependency on some
other patch?

CC drivers/mfd/ab8500-sysctrl.o
../drivers/mfd/ab8500-sysctrl.c:94:14: error: ‘POWEROFF_PRIORITY_LOW’
undeclared here (not in a function)
../drivers/mfd/ab8500-sysctrl.c: In function ‘ab8500_sysctrl_probe’:
../drivers/mfd/ab8500-sysctrl.c:206:2: error: implicit declaration of
function ‘devm_register_power_off_handler’
err = devm_register_power_off_handler(sysctrl_dev, &ab8500_poweroff_nb);

I wanted to provide a Tested-by but I guess I can only give this:
