Different bits of hardware get powered down depending on current system
state. In the audio case (which is so far as I know the only case for
this sort of stuff that currently does anything in mainline) we'll keep
alive any active paths (that is, paths carrying live audio) between
endpoints in the audio subsystem which have been explicitly marked as
staying alive during suspend. Other audio paths will be powered down
when the system suspends. During normal run time only paths that are
active will be powered up.
