A fix is committed to -current for an ACPI bug which prevented
one from shutting down properly.  If you have had a problem
with -current ACPI (and disabled ACPI from your kernel),
you are encouraged to test it again.
If you still have a problem in shutdown/halt -p, please open a
new PR.

Thanks to Matthias for testing and closing the PR.
