That is what SLEEP_0, SLEEP_1, SLEEP_2 could be used for.

IOW, all these qcom definitions are nicely represented in the
state-name and we could simply stick to SLEEP_0, SLEEP_1 for the node
names. There is wide variability in the the names of the qcom idle
states across SoC families downstream, so I'd argue against using
those for the node names.

Just for cpu states (non-wfi) I see the use of the following names
downstream across families. The C<num> seems to come from x86
world[1]:

- C4, standalone power collapse (spc)
- C4, power collapse (fpc)
- C2D, retention
- C3, power collapse (pc)
- C4, rail power collapse (rail-pc)
