Not yet, but I'm trying to collect some more information.

It looks like the newer (8+) versions of Windows expect the GPU driver
to prepare the GPU for power removal in some specific way and the
latter fails if the GPU has not been prepared as expected.

Because testing indicates that the Windows 7 path in the platform
firmware works, it may be worth trying to do what it does to the PCIe
link before invoking the _OFF method for the power resource
controlling the GPU power.

If the Mika's theory that the Win7 path simply turns the PCIe link off
is correct, then whatever the _OFF method tries to do to the link
after that should not matter.
