Some people have come to me concerned about the wakeup latency of having
the halt call in there, and it also looks like the PAL has a bug on our
platform that causes hangs when we call PAL_HALT_LIGHT (which we're
tracking down), so I wouldn't mind if the config option stuck around a
little longer (or was a boot time parameter at least).

Thanks,
Jesse
