"halt -p" reboots instead powering off system

Bug Description

giving "halt -p" or "shutdown -p now" reboots system instead off powering off.

I have tried some kernel commandline options already, but without success:
- reboot=bios
- acpi=noirq

but none did help. System keeps rebooting on "poweroff", "halt -p" or "shutdown -p now"

System powers off if booted from Debian testing, Knoppix 7.7.1 or FreeBSD 11.0. It also powers off if booted from Ubuntu 14.04.5. But not if booted from Ubuntu 16.04.2 (on HD) or Ubuntu 16.10 (life-DVD).
