Mainly for others, the BSP default cleanup operations
selection mechanism is defined in


dnl USAGE:
dnl    RTEMS_BSP_CLEANUP_OPTIONS([0|1], [0|1], [0|1])
dnl WHERE:
dnl    argument 1 indicates the default value for BSP_PRESS_KEY_FOR_RESET
dnl    argument 2 indicates the default value for BSP_RESET_BOARD_AT_EXIT
dnl    argument 3 indicates the default value for BSP_PRINT_EXCEPTION_CONTEXT

To change Raspberry Pi behavior it should work to specify

../../rtems/configure --target=arm-rtems4.12 --enable-rtemsbsp="raspberrypi2" ... \

The default for RPi2 can be changed by

diff --git a/c/src/lib/libbsp/arm/raspberrypi/configure.ac b/c/src/lib/libbsp/arm/raspberrypi/configure.ac
index b772d6e..f84d6d8 100644

Actual implementation reboots the board and firmware starts again to load
application. I can add variant which ends with something like power
down after firmware restart. Actual operation is equivalent to Linux "reboot",
I can change that to (add variant) equivalent Linux "halt".

Best wishes,
