according to the dtsi, the rk3399-sapphire is using rk808 pimc right?

i think the power off flow would be:
1/ rk808 set the pm_power_off callback:
         switch (rk808->variant) {
         case RK805_ID:
                 pm_pwroff_fn = rk805_device_shutdown;

         pm_off = of_property_read_bool(np,
         if (pm_off && !pm_power_off) {
                 rk808_i2c_client = client;
                 pm_power_off = pm_pwroff_fn;

2/ the poweroff command would call kernel_power_off:
void kernel_power_off(void)

3/ arm64's machine_power_off() would call pm_power_off to let rk808 
cutoff the power.

if it ends up halted, maybe something wrong during setup the pm_power_off?
         /* Instead of trying to make the power_off code look like
          * halt when pm_power_off is not set do it the easy way.
         if ((cmd == LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_POWER_OFF) && !pm_power_off)
                 cmd = LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_HALT;

we've added a shutdown() to the iommu driver:

any chance related?
