Subject[PATCH v2 0/3] add support for power off check in suspend
From: Claudiu Beznea <>


AT91 platforms support a power saving mode where SoC's power is cut off (we call
it backup mode). The resume is done with the help of bootloaders. To be able to
suspend/resume Linux to/from this mode all the drivers suspend/resume callbacks
should save/restore the content of all the active registers. We have 2 problems
we are trying to solve:
- some of these drivers are shared with other non Microchip SoCs (e.g. macb
driver) and we don't want to disturbe other users of corresponding IPs with
all the register save/restore operations;
- the suspend/resume time for the rest of the power saving mode we are using
could be improved if we would know in drivers the suspend mode the platform
is switched to.

A solution that would have been solve our problems was proposed in [1] but in
the end it wasn't accepted. It ended up with the introduction of
pm_suspend_target_state variable that could be used along with the changes in
this series.

While the discussion of [1] progressed it has been proposed (in [2]) to
implement a function that would tell if the platform's power would be cut off
at the end of the suspend procedure.

The patches in this series does as follows:
1/3 - add a new member to platform_suspend_ops that will tell if platform's
power will be cut off at the end of the suspend procedure; drivers could
use it via platform_off_in_suspend()
2/3 - add a new function to regulator's core that could be used to check if a
proper regulator has been configured (via DT) to be powered off in
suspend. This is used on this series to check the CPU's regulator is
properly configured in DT to be turned off in suspend.
3/3 - fill .off_in_suspend member of at91_pm_ops; the functionality in patch 2/3
is used to double check CPU's regulator would be turned off in suspend.

Thank you,
Claudiu Beznea


Changes in v2:
- remove !! instruction in regulator_is_disabled_in_suspend() and
- s/weather/wether in patch 1/1
