This is incorrect. You're referring to the case where the vibrator is
continuously on, but this was not the OP case. 

He's referring to when the phone is vibrating with pulses. This is a
chip feature where you program it to pulsate. This is done by zhone
and if zhone dies, it keeps pulsating. 

The way to turn it off is: 

echo none > /sys/class/leds/neo1973:vibrator/trigger

For reference, the way to turn it on, is: 

echo timer > /sys/class/leds/neo1973:vibrator/trigger
echo 300 > /sys/class/leds/neo1973:vibrator/delay_on
echo 700 > /sys/class/leds/neo1973:vibrator/delay_off

Someone registered should put this in the wiki.
