I never understood many clear definitions here either, personally.

It's not really "automatic", it's a product of this line:

static const struct platform_suspend_ops rk3288_suspend_ops = {
.enter = rk3288_suspend_enter,
.valid = suspend_valid_only_mem, <--- here
.prepare = rk3288_suspend_prepare,
.finish = rk3288_suspend_finish,

and the fact that we don't check the 'state' argument in

But still, I'm not sure it's productive to rename shallow until we support
