Sorry I didn't make it clear.
The problem here is, we are going to set the device power state to D3
cold, and current OSPM has no support for it.

Another patch of yours solved this problem by defining:
1 Device supports D3 cold if it has _PR3;
2 For a device to be put to D3 cold, power off all the power resources
referenced in its _PR3.

Since this can't work for AMD's platform(there is no _PR3 for the sata
acpi device), I would like to change this a little bit:
1 Device supports D3 cold if it has _PR3 or _PS3;
2 For a device to be put to D3 cold, execute _PS3 first if available and
then deal with _PR3 as above.

What do you think of this?
If you are OK to the above idea, I can change the corresponding patch for
you to review.
