I guess it may also apply to others too, but so far I've only
seen this on omap3 occasionally.

OK that's a good idea as this may not be always HWMOD_FORCE_MSTANDBY.
I guess I initially assumed that this was always related to
HWMOD_FORCE_MSTANDBY as that's what seemed to hang the system until
I figured it was just the wake-up events that stopped working :)

I'll do that as a follow-up patch as I already sent the pull request
for the $subject one as it was hanging my tests occasionally.
