Are you talking about [1] ?

this certainly looks a lot

For the moment, the patches which describes the regulators states in
suspend for SAMA5D2 Xplained board (which we are trying to address here)
are in pending [2] (they were introduced with patches for act8945a
suspend/resume stuff). Probably they will be introduced after one more
Linux version.

I can get rid of this patch, take advantage of [3] and [4] and introduce
also the regulator standby states. In this case, no matter the mapping b/w
Linux power saving modes and AT91 SoC's power saving modes, we will be
covered on misconfiguration (at least on SAMA5D2 Xplained board).

And in patch 3/3 I could get rid of regulator checks and rely on DT (bad
thing would be that in case of no input for regulator's state in
mem/standby the board could not properly suspended/resumed), if any.

What do you think about this?

Thank you,
