Hmm, be careful about switching off power supplies that aren't supposed
to be switched off while others are still powered. You can easily
destroy hardware with that. Depending on how things are wired up
internally, voltages can leak from one unit block to the other. Maybe
Steve can can give a statement from official SMSC source about whether
it is safe to switch off VDD33A in this case.

Anyway, from what's written in the datasheet, I wouldn't dare just
blindly doing it.
