Right; if no DMA is pending, then the HSB matrix clock can be idled, DRAM put
into self-refresh, and most peripherals can issue wakeups ... AP7 "Frozen"
state, very analagous to AT91 "standby" on Linux. UARTs and GPIOs can wake.

Deeper sleep states -- "standby" with clocks running, "stop" with all
except 32K (and RTC) off, "static" with no clocks at all -- can only
wake from WAKE_N and external interrupts; and RTC except in "static".
I suspect "stop" and "static" might want to use the on-chip SRAMs so
they don't need to change DRAM timings while they fiddle with clocks.

The closest analogue to the AT91 support would map /sys/power/state:

standby --> to AP7 "Frozen"
mem --> to AP7 "Stop"

Except that there could be no GPIO wakeups from "mem" ... so the $SUBJECT
patch wouldn't be useful on AVR32 (just AT91), unless USARTn.RXD is wired
up to one of those special wake-capable pins (extremely board-specific).

I'd think the support of any "deeper" state for "mem" sleep would not
be entirely board specific ... when the RTC alarm is set, any board
should be able to use states other than "static". But otherwise, no
board could enter those states unless WAKE_N or an external IRQ are
doing something useful (like being hooked up to a button).

Matching those few "deep wake" events to a given device would imply
board-specific glue code.

For "standby" sleep state, yes -- map to at most AVR32 "Frozen" state.
That'd be a good first step for PM support.
