This is still planned, but it won't touch the PAM registers so as not to
break S3.  Peter Stuge said that the memory controller registers keep
their content across S3 in real machines too.

Hard reset = powerdown, soft reset = reset or S3.

QEMU only cares about soft reset.  There is one case where that matters,
which is "-no-shutdown -no-reboot".  Here you can go to S4 or S5 and
then type "cont", and the machine will behave as if you actually did a
soft reset.  I don't think it matters much in practice, though.
