PMIC_ON_REQ didn't connect to any pin of PMIC in your case? Don't understand
why not follow normal board design guide to power off pmic by PMIC_ON_REQ.
How to power on board again then?

No. First, it was only one customer specific issue. After some research
I found even publicly available boards (for example RioTboard) which has
same/similar design. After seeing this in imx6 documentation as valid
power off way, I have no doubts - there should be even more devices doin
this in the wild.

Power cycle. Without this patch, power of is not real power off. So,
power cycle, is expected behavior for user interaction. On usual PC,
reset button will not enable PC as well.

Not all boards follow the reference design, that's a fact of life.

Please look at the i.MX6Q reference manual. The sequence implemented in
this patchset can be found as a valid way to power off the system in
"60.4.3 Power mode transitions" "Normal ON to OFF with external PMIC",
so there is hardly any way to argue that this is a board specific
quirk. This is one of the Freescale/NXP recommended sequences to turn
off the system.

Regards,
Lucas

Just wild assumption: you haven't read comment provided in patch:
Subject: [PATCH v8 2/6] ARM: imx6: register pm_power_off handler if
 "fsl,pmic-stby-poweroff" is set

One of the Freescale recommended sequences for power off with external
PMIC is the following:
...
3.  SoC is programming PMIC for power off when standby is asserted.
4.  In CCM STOP mode, Standby is asserted, PMIC gates SoC supplies.

See:
http://www.nxp.com/assets/documents/data/en/reference-manuals/IMX6DQRM.pdf
page 5083

This patch implements step 4. of this sequence.

Sure, at least it will power off. It make no sense to have power off
functionality which use same amount of power as power on system.

Enough to add it in to changelog? or should it go to the binding
documentation?

Sorry, I disagree.

A binding is a way to describe a specific hardware layout, it isn't the
right place to advice a hardware designer on the implications of a
specific hardware implementation. The NXP hardware design guide is a
more suitable place for this information.

We also don't mention in random bindings that the system won't be able
to brew a fresh cup of coffee.

 The clock consumer should specify the desired clock by having the clock
 ID in its "clocks" phandle cell.  See include/dt-bindings/clock/imx6qdl-clock.h
 for the full list of i.MX6 Quad and DualLite clock IDs.
