True:  the new boot2 is not needed to test autonomous mode.  It is
only needed for the nohost Mesh Points.  Also, the driver in the
current build (406) will work fine in autonomous mode and it supports
suspend to memory. So, to test you will need:

1. Install build 406
2. Copy the latest wireless firmware (5.220.11p4) to /lib/firmware
3. Reboot in the new kernel/wireless firmware.
4. Configure the wireless interface or wait for it to auto-start the
mesh in channel 1.
5. Suspend to RAM

# echo 'm' > /sys/power/state

After suspending the 'Associated' led should remain on, and the
wireless interface will continue to forward traffic.
