There's two possibilities here:

1) Lenovo's firmware is broken and the 9-second delay is always going to 
be there. In that case we should try to use the ACPI reboot vector 

2) We're doing something wrong in our shutdown sequence which then 
triggers this problem as a result.

Either way, I think this patch is wrong.
