You mean the firmware is supposed to power it down/up transparently without
kernel involvement? Because it should be powered down to save the power, no?

But I just found out that when I build my own kernel using the distro config
as base but reduced by make localmodconfig, the "mhi mhi0: Requested to
power ON" and related messages don't occur anymore, so there's something
weird going on.
