That's a regression for sure. Does not seem to happen with a later
version of the PMIC here, but I too am seeing it at least with my
LDP. I'll take a look what's the proper way to fix that as there's
now some PM support with DT based booting that's not there for legacy
booting. So the PMIC configuration is different between legacy booting
and DT booting.

OK well that's good.

OK good these are known issues but can be dealt with later on.

Sure, I'll let you know as soon as I have something available
for the PMIC powerdown issue.
