Right. So essentially you're saying that the bootloader on trogdor
(coreboot / depthcharge) doesn't do anything with this and thus it
doesn't make sense on this board. That sounds right to me. Basically
there's no way in userspace to tell the bootloader to reboot into
recovery mode or developer mode. Those things need to be initiated
manually by the user.

It's possible that Qualcomm internally has some out-of-tree patches
where they use the PON for ramdump mode. +Rajendra as an FYI in case
there's somehow he should give a heads up to about this.
