Again, yes SoC can be powered down but you give no reasons why this is
useful other than help you to hack around to implement suspend_ops. As
suggested please try using freeze_ops.
After commit a94e502c22b6 ("cpuidle: dt: assign ->enter_freeze to same
as ->enter callback function"), you can enter suspend-to-idle(a.k.a
freeze state) on all platforms using ARM DT cpuidle driver.
