Yes I am aware of this changes.
But, I have tired to study *RK808 datasheet V1.4* [0] below section
*5.2.3 Power Channel Control/Monitor Registers*
for clean reboot I was going to try disable some bit in below
into reboot handle in the future patch.


I was going see if this helps to do clean reboot.
further more use this in suspend/resume operation.


But I feed that their is some more issue with related to mmc or PCIe
not able to cleanly release the resources while reboot which caused
then to disable after reboot.

Yes I have follow the mailing list and I read this thread.
I am not aware of ATF complete architecture.
