FWIW, this violates the original design of the test system. Turning the 
board off at the end of the test is a policy decision that not all 
use-cases will want, and hence not something that the test system should 
mandate. Instead, the intention is for the user to invoke the test 
system using a script that does something like:

1) Power on board.
2) Run test.
3) Power off board.

See ./doc/develop/py_testing.rst in the U-Boot source for more 
background info, or the following URL for an example script:
