We usually don't keep the patch-revision change log in the commit message
(e.g. put in the cover letter).

But in general, how do you want to handle updates to a single patch in a
series you already have in your tree? Do you prefer a proper
incremental-fix patch (with commit message), just an updated single
patch, or a resend of the whole series?

The comment above the function reads:

* The RTC can be used to control an external PMIC via the pmic_power_en pin,
* which can be configured to transition to OFF on ALARM2 events.
*
* Notes:
* The two-second alarm offset is the shortest offset possible as the alarm
* registers must be set before the next timer update and the offset
* calculation is too heavy for everything to be done within a single access
* period (~15us).

So it's effect is at least fairly obvious and documented.

Looks good, and I should have put something like that there nonetheless.

Should we really require every power-off handler to document arch
behaviour (even if its inconsistent and currently undocumented); in
this case that some arches return to user-space where we may oops if
called from process 0 (e.g. systemd, but not if using sysvinit)?
