Thanks for the pointer.


Yes. I will try that once GIC-v3 context save/restore is supported in ATF.

I think that will basically work for suspend-to-ram
because all contexts including both non-secure and secure worlds will
be retained in the main memory.

However, I still do not understand how the context is preserved during
the hibernation (suspend-to-disk).


If my understanding is correct, hibernation on Linux works like follows:

[1] Freeze all tasks
[2] CPU_OFF for non-boot CPUs
[3] Create a hibernation image
[4] CPU_ON for non-boot CPUs
[5] Write the hibernation image to the disk (=swap area)
[6] SYSTEM_OFF


IIUC, [5] only writes the context Linux takes care of (only non-secure).

If so, where and how does the firmware write the GIC-v3 context
to the disk?
