I think what you need to do ought to be quite similar to the teardown we do
for S3 suspend. Have you considered reusing some of the mechanism in
arch/x86/acpi/power.c? The function device_power_down(), and possibly some
other bits in its caller, would be especially useful I should think. It
already shuts down iommu functionality, turns off x2apic, etc etc. Even if
it is not a perfect fit as is, perhaps it could be fixed up -- it sure looks
similar to what ypu're trying to do. :-)
