Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/2] memory: ti-emif-sram: introduce relocatable
 suspend/resume handlers

Russell,

* Dave Gerlach <d-gerlach@...com> [170328 13:57]:
> Certain SoCs like Texas Instruments AM335x and AM437x require parts
> of the EMIF PM code to run late in the suspend sequence from SRAM,
> such as saving and restoring the EMIF context and placing the memory
> into self-refresh.

> One requirement for these SoCs to suspend and enter its lowest power
> mode, called DeepSleep0, is that the PER power domain must be shut off.
> Because the EMIF (DDR Controller) resides within this power domain, it
> will lose context during a suspend operation, so we must save it so we
> can restore once we resume. However, we cannot execute this code from
> external memory, as it is not available at this point, so the code must
> be executed late in the suspend path from SRAM.

Does the above look OK to you?
