This API is called from the last CPU that is powering down in an
interrupt locked context (say during suspend). If we are waiting on a
request, we would bail out of the suspend process. There can be no issue
requested during the last step in suspend. The PM driver itself does not
make any TCS request. Currently, this API is used by the downstream code
in its last man activities. The usage by platform coordinated mode is
still under discussion.
