But what does that actually do... it doesn't turn the thing off. I
guess it sends some suspend command somehow to the firmware.
This /sys thing I mention uses a pin on the module to "turn it off" to
the point it does not react as an SDIO device even any more. Then when
we deassert that, we need to scan it again. In addition, this patch
makes it boot "turned off".
