x86 halt() causes processor to go to C1 state (which is often not the deepest). But other than that it seems similar to what you are describing.OK - then Konrad's suggestion of using "safe_halt()" here rather than "halt()" would work for ia64.
I originally didn't want to use safe_halt() because the CPU will wake up on an unmasked HW interrupt unlike halt(). But I guess we are not supposed to get any such interrupts when we are off-lining a CPU so safe_halt() should be OK.
