 The mali part in RK3399 is powered via an external regulator.
 If the regulator is unused it's automatically shutdown in FreeBSD
unless you set hw.regulator.disable_unused=0.
 That being said on rockpro64 the always-on property is set for this
regulator so you will need some overlay that removes this property.
