Does anyone have any ideas here or shall I propose:

Subject: [PATCH] Turn off acpi_shutdown for windows 7

As described in <1432284841.10746.136.camel@xxxxxxxxxx> /
Windows 7 does not appear to reliably actually shutdown when asked to
via the ACPI power button.

Once this patch is applied some force pushes will likely be needed in
order for this to not appear as a regression.

Alternatively could make it an allowed/non-blocking failure?
