In this case etm_set_pwrdwn() sets bit 0 of ETMCR, which disables the
ETM. That being said the Embedded Trace Macrocell Architecture
Specification (ID101211) mentions in section 3.5.1 that despite ETMCR
bit 0 being set to 1, it is always possible to write to the claim set
registers. As such I moved the release of the claim tag in function
etm_disable_hw() below etm_set_pwrdwn() in the second revision of this
set [1].
