I'm not convinced we should try to handle this in a generic way
as only some devices need dynamic remuxing of some pins.

>         |- PINs state set to SLEEP
>   |- pm_generic_runtime_suspend
>      |- omap_i2c_runtime_suspend()
>         |- PINs state set to IDLE  <--- *oops* PINs state is IDLE and not SLEEP
>   |- omap_device_idle()
>      |- omap_hwmod_idle()
>         |- _idle()
>            |- disbale module (sysc&clocks)

And in this example you are assuming that you need separate idle and
sleep states, which is not true at least for most cases I've seen.

It is possible that am33xx needs separate idle and sleep states, but
most likely only for some pins. For omap[345] we can get away with
just the default state for most cases.
