I guess D3 has to mean something, right? :-)

Here is the problem, there is no _PR3 in AMD's implementation, just _PS3.
And since _S0W evaluates 4, I've to put this device into D3 cold state
with _PS3.

And the ACPI does have some words like:

Platform/drivers must assume that the device will have power completely
removed when the device is place into “D3” via _PS3

This is in section 7.2.11: _PR3.

There is no D3 hot support for this device(from the firmware's
perspective), either it is at D0(via _PS0), or it will be at D3 cold(via

Thanks for the review.
