The same .shutdown() path is used whether you kexec, reboot or poweroff,
but for poweroff we do care about allowing specific wake-up sources
configured as such to wake-up the system at a later time, like GPIOs,
RTC, etc.

AFAICT that calls mmc_blk_shutdown() but that is pretty much it, the
SDHCI platform_driver still needs to do something in order to conserve
power including disabling host->clk, otherwise we would not have done
that for sdhci-brcmstb.c.
