Waking up won't be the problem. Linux won't boot.
Alternatively, if this Linux kernel is paired with a version of the
bootloader that does most of the initializion, but not the settings
that we want here, I expect there could be issues.
I don't want to duplicate the u-boot sdr configuration code, instead
I document my assumptions here here. For future generations who take
this patch. If they have a problem with s2r, they will look through
the git logs and find this helpful note of what their bootloader
was supposed to do.
