Yes suspend will do it, you still need to configure wake-up events
though at least for the UARTs. I think I got enabled mdm6600 to low-power
state after connecting over UART ts27010 and then suspending OHCI:

ohci=$(find /sys/bus/platform/devices -name \*.ohci)
devices=$(find ${ohci}/ -type d -name control)
for device in ${devices}; do
echo -n "auto" > ${device}/level
echo -n "control" > ${device}/level

echo "usb-phy@1" > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/phy-mapphone-mdm6600/unbind

For power consumption, 160mW is high yeah. We currently cannot hit core
retention on omap4 until some GPIO issues are fixed. I've been trying to
think for a good fix for that, but need to debug it more when I get a chance.

>From few months ago, I recall I got droid4 to run at around 65mW idle
with WLAN connected and modem off with my test hacks. With modem on
and USB suspended I think I got to around 100mW.

Then I recall measuring droid4 with stock android in flight mode
measuring at around 15 - 30mW. But that requires off mode to work on
omap4, maybe we'll get to that too at some point after core retention.
