There are a few possibilities. E.g., SDIO functions can be individually
enabled and disabled. The AR6k should be in disabled state until the
SDIO stack identifies it.
What I don't know is how power consumption in this state compares with
power consumption when up but quiescent. Considering what I know of the
design of the AR6k, I wouldn't expect a big difference.
I thought there was some interest in using AR6k as a module to reduce
boot time. This should work quite well now.
