Hi there,

in Kernel-4.5.0 make oldconfig asked me, if I want to activate this option. Google isn't quite verbose in this case.

Is this option relevant/usable for ordinary x86 based computers?

x86 goes through ACPI for that stuff, this option is mainly for ARM things that literally have a separate chip on the board to handle poweroff.
