Does it need to? M3 firmware can pretty much define "I will force the 
device into low power state, and if the drivers dont handle things 
properly, fix the darned driver". M3 behavior should be considered as a 
"hardware" as far as Linux running on MPU is concerned, and firmware 
helps change the behavior by accounting for SoC quirks. *if* we have 
ability to handle this in the firmware, there is no need to carry this 
in Linux.
