Someone is going to have to walk me through the context for me to fully
understand what this is all about - what's the problem?
Generally for suspend if the sequencing is being done by the processor
it's been handled by the drivers for the components in question. For
sequencing beyond that you're into hardware features which aren't all
that regular sadly and often aren't controllable either. It sounds like
this is the latter case but the thing that manages some of the late
power down stages does so using a firmware we can rewrite?
