    I don't think the notifiers should be called in ARM-generic code.
    As discussed w/Colin in his proposal for the CPU PM notifiers, the
    platform-specific code should decide when to run notifier chain.

    To give an example, on OMAP we wouldn't want the notifier chain to be
    run until the OMAP PM core has programmed the next states of the various
    power domains. That way the notifier functions could check the next
    state to determine if their powerdomain is going to retention or off and
    decide whether or not a context save/restore will be needed.
