Doze should work (a long time ago when I did power measurements I saw a
drop in consumption once Linux started, and the system was idle)... Nap
is not supported, and should probably be removed from the e300 cputable
entry. I don't think it's worthwhile to flush the cache every time the
cpu is idle just to nap instead of doze.
