Would it make sense to mention something about these being the 
ARM9/orion5x Linkstations? If I understand correctly, the older PPC 
Linkstations have a single-byte poweroff command. (Maybe they could even 
be supported by qnap-poweroff.)

See arch/powerpc/platforms/embedded6xx/linkstation.c around line 123, 
and arch/powerpc/platforms/embedded6xx/ls_uart.c.
