Please stop sending patches to my Linaro mailbox, and use
shawnguo@xxxxxxxxxx instead. You should already get that if you ever
run ./scripts/ on the patch. Also please always copy
kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx for i.MX platform patches like this.

1453 lines addition to kernel only for i.MX7D suspend support. Yes,
this is the way we support suspend on i.MX6, but that's enough, and
we have to stop this somewhere. I would ask you to take Sudeep's
comment and adopt PSCI for i.MX7D power management.
