I was mostly trying to avoid code duplication in
machine_halt/machine_restart/machine_power_off and didn't intend that
function to be used outside. The semantics is just - to hang the CPU
when things didn't go as expected and code that was supposed to
restart/halt/power off the machine failed.

Calling it "power_off" seems a bit misleading, the function doesn't
really try to do anything related to powering off, really.
