The current OMAP IOMMU code already leverages the pdata ops for
performing the resets, so not adding the flags would also require
additional changes in the driver.

Also, the reset lines controlling the MMUs actually also manage the
reset for all the other sub-modules other than the processor cores
within the sub-systems. We have currently different issues (see [1] for
eg. around the IPU sub-system entering RET in between), so from a PM
point of view, we do prefer to place the MMUs also in reset when we are
runtime suspended.
