I've posted a question about that on the list some time ago. According to
lasi docs, cutting of the power with the power switch should generate a
power failure interrupt, which I thought I could catch and make a clean
shutdown. I suppose, that it should be an interruption with code 2, so
I've added a handler for that in arch/parisc/kernel/traps.c (I think).
Well, it never became triggered by the power switch, and I have no idea,

Best regards,
