Yes. Its corresponding power, io_3v3, io_1v8 are always-on.
The original design is, it can be turned-off by configuring CHIP_PWD pin 
as LOW.
Somehow, it doesn't work at all since firmware's issue.

Basically, you can't turn off the Ar6k entirely once you trigger the 
CHIP_PWD ping.
The alternative way is to use wmiconfig to let Ar6k get into suspend mode.
