Adding support for a suspended device state is not really part of the 
shutdown, so you'll have to convince Klaus on that. Plus, if you just 
want to disable the video decoder, you can feed it with a dummy signal 
and don't need a special suspended state. It works for streamdev at least.

If Softdevice knows that there is no current user, then it is free to 
also ignore subtitles together with the video signal. I don't see a 
problem here.
