Looking at the code, I didn't see any specific handling of cluster power
collapse. AFAIK, the HW counters do not retain config (what event they
are counting) or value (the current count) across power collapse.
Wouldn't you need to register for some kind of PM_ENTER/EXIT notifiers
to handle that?

Thanks,
