This call looks much more deeply internal than those other functions,
it's not like reboot_notifier and restart_handler.

It seems that the only user of pm_power_off_prepare right now is the
ACPI core and your patch uses it in a regulator driver. This looks
extremely strange. Maybe this is why imx maintainers are stalling on
this patch?

It might help if the ACPI/PM maintainers ack/review this part
explicitly, and the usage in part 5:
