This looks like it would have been easier to use
SET_NOIRQ_SYSTEM_SLEEP_PM_OPS
as pointed out later...

This one does not involve IRQs rather calls
pinctrl_force_sleep/default which sets up hogged
pins for energy saving while sleeping.

Pretty much the same as Nomadik, with some extra
register (also not IRQ-related).

This one is problematic. However this is on an I2C
expander meaning the slow bus traffic needs to be
working and if IRQs are off at syscore suspend/resume
time, I2C will not work. I think Amelie has tested this thing
pretty thoroughly, and that expanders are less sensitive
to this.

This one is like the Nomadik: just forcing some hogs to
go into low power mode.

> SIMPLE_DEV_PM_OPS(plgpio_dev_pm_ops, plgpio_suspend, plgpio_resume);

This one is affected by the same problem, I don't know if anyone
really has this hardware anymore, but there are some
SPEAr products deployed so the users should be notified
that they may need to move this to syscore ops.

Viresh?

IIUC that callback is for exactly this, and occurs after IRQs
are disabled and before IRQs are
re-enabled. Again the same problem if you need slow bus
traffic in your callback (I2C/SPI devices): it is not going to work.
