You are missing me telling you the whole story, sorry I got confused,
but you are absolutely right these are separate lists and on
poweroff/shutdown only ->shutdown() is called. What I had missed in the
report I was submitted was that there was a .shutdown() callback being
added to gpio_keys.c, which of course, because it's an Android based
project is not in the upstream Linux kernel.

The problem does remain valid though AFAICT. Thanks Grygorii!
