mem: Option to toggle DRAM low-power states

Adding an option to enable DRAM low-power states. The low power
states can have a significant impact on application performance
(sim_ticks) on the order of 2-3x, especially for compute-gpu apps.
The options allows for it to easily be enabled/disabled to compare
performance numbers. The option is disabled by default.
