Actually "cap-power-off-card" is normally included with all .dts files supporting wilink
So it should have been there from the start for this board as well.
It probably worked without it due to the explicit call to mmc_power_restore_host()
that was there as an old workaround for trying to control the power explicitly from the
driver which was actually causing other failures on suspend/resume as the mmc layer
already power the module on resume.
"keep-power-in-suspend" is needed in case of planning to use "WoWLAN":
