There is a bug if l2x0 controller has been enabled when calling
l2x0_init, the aux ctrl register will not be saved in l2x0_saved_regs.
Therefore we will use uninitialized l2x0_saved_regs.aux_ctrl for
resuming later.

In this patch, the aux ctrl value is read and saved after it is
initialized. So we have the real value being set for resuming.

Hi Catalin,

Thanks for reviewing.
I have another question:
There are a lot of registers in l2x0 controller.
Why we only save so small amount of registers?
Base on l2x0 spec, they suggest to save/restore all of them.

Thanks.
