I need to execute a few machine instructions just before kernel "halts".
Reason is I need to inform a board controller it can actually remove power.
Question is: what is the best-practice to achieve this?
In an old (3.18) kernel for the same board I hacked
.../arch/mips/ralink/reset.c to add some register settings in
static void ralink_halt(void) but that function seems gone together with
static int __init mips_reboot_setup(void), so i guess structure changed a lot since then.
What is the correct hook to use in modern kernels?
