By WOL I meant Wake-on-LAN, I will spell out the whole acronym.

I will clarify the value mapping and try to replicate some of these states
so I can write a better description.

These are all related to the platform as a whole.
So the Marvell SoC and all of the required peripherals are turned on.

These values indicate whether the board has been shut down gracefully and
whether it has been powered on automatically (when power came back) or by
pressing the power button.
I will also extend the documentation with the value mapping for this.

I left out the version format descriptions as they are in the recognizable
format and all of them are quite arbitrary (e.g. v1.000).
