I completly agree about adding a unified and generic property for that purpose.
I already proposed something for that on devicetree ML, see the thread
"Proposal: generic property for system-power-controller".
Unfortunately I did not get replies :) .

not show me indent/spaces problems :/ .
Sorry because this is a very boring issue when reviewing patches... I
will investigate ^^
