the reference is the mainstream code. Today there is no pm.c file and 
everything is located in db8500-prcmu.c. Except if I misunderstood, if 
Linus, who is the maintainer of the ux500 SoC, prefers to have this 
portion of code in this file until Mattias does its cleanups, that does 
not really matter if it is in pm.c or db8500-prcmu.c for the moment.

That does not mean this code won't be moved to pm.c in the future.
