The Ascii-art is beutiful, indeed:)

Yes, you are right - without any pm_ops the driver works well after
suspend/resume in standby. However in the linux mem and standby is
treated exactly the same as pm sleep, so the same routines are
executed in both modes. Hence the s2ram support cannot spoil standby.
