I'm seeing one issue when I add support for PCIe suspend/resume functionality.
The issue is that, when regulator_bulk_diable() is called, disabling one of the power rails (which is deriving its voltage from SD4) of PCIe is failing.
The reason being, I2C controller is getting power gated before power rail disable is called.
Hence SD4 is made dependent on ENABLE1, which is nothing but the deep sleep signal coming from Tegra,
So eventually, SD4 will be powered off when system enters into deep-sleep state.
