So the _reset() above asserts the reset for IPs with PRCM reset lines,
but module is not enabled (no register accesses even if clocks enabled).
The _enable() code bails out if there are PRCM reset lines (there are
varied IPs with resets including processors, and we really cannot enable
and idle it without loading some code that would have executed WFI).

Yes, in the case of IPs with hard-reset lines, that init is left to the

As I said above, not all IPs with hard-reset lines have the same power
on/power off sequences.. IPs with only SYSCONFIG based soft-reset all
pretty much follow the PRCM HW_Auto idling, so dealing with them is
rather straightforward in the common hwmod code. I have had to do rather
funky stuff in our product kernels when doing suspend/resume on IOMMUs,

Yeah, it would be good to restart this discussion, as I will be adding
the DT support for the remoteproc devices a bit later.
