NMI does not have to generate crash dump on every guest we support.
Actually even for windows guest it does not generate one without
tweaking registry. For all I know there is a guest that checks mail when
NMI arrives.

And for all we know, a guest can respond to an ACPI poweroff event by tweeting the star spangled banner but we still call the corresponding QMP command system_poweroff.

A better name for it would be system_power_button. While guests that blast away national anthems when the button is pressed are rare (no doubt to the high localization costs), it's possible to configure an OS to go into S3 sleep when the button is pressed (I used to do it when I had a desktop at home).
