This is useful to support other wake-up sources. Linux has a standardized
way to handle wake-up sources, which may be circumvented by calling PSCI

Freezing the system works, but requires manual configurarion.
This should be done automatically.

This should be used automatically if the system can't wake-up from
suspend-to-RAM using the configured wake-up sources.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
