--- Comment #26 from Lukas Wunner <lukas at wunner.de> ---
So hda_call_codec_suspend() tries to set the codec's power state to D3 by
calling hda_set_power_state(). The return value of that is the 32 bit response
detailed on page 151 ff. of the HDA spec. hda_codec_runtime_suspend() then
checks if the PS-ClkStopOk bit (bit 9) is set. Only then does it allow suspend
of the codec.

That bit is not set. It's also not set for the other two codecs of your machine
(in the Intel HDA controller).

And there's another oddity, the 32 bit response should contain the actual power
state in bits 7:4, but those bits are always cleared, for all codecs and
regardless whether the codec was put into D0 or D3. In other words, the codecs
all remain in D0 even if we tell them to go to D3.

Moreover, bits 0:3 of the response should contain the last power state set, but
those bits are always either set to D0 or D1. But according to the power
capabilities of the AMD HDA controller, it only supports D0 and D3, not D1. So
this looks totally bogus.

Let me test the debug patch on my own machine and check what the response looks
like there.
