misc: mic: Enable OSPM suspend and resume support.
This patch enables support for OSPM suspend and resume in the MIC driver. During a host suspend event, the driver performs an orderly shutdown of the cards if they are online. Upon resume, any cards that were previously online before suspend are rebooted. The driver performs an orderly shutdown of the card primarily to ensure that applications in the card are terminated and mounted devices are safely un-mounted before the card is powered down in the event of an OSPM suspend. The driver makes use of the MIC daemon to accomplish OSPM suspend and resume. The driver registers a PM notifier per MIC device. The devices get notified synchronously during PM_SUSPEND_PREPARE and PM_POST_SUSPEND phases. During the PM_SUSPEND_PREPARE phase, the driver performs one of the following three tasks. 1) If the card is 'offline', the driver sets the card to a 'suspended' state and returns. 2) If the card is 'online', the driver initiates card shutdown by setting the card state to suspending. This notifies the MIC daemon which invokes shutdown and sets card state to 'suspended'. The driver returns after the shutdown is complete. 3) If the card is already being shutdown, possibly by a host user space application, the driver sets the card state to 'suspended' and returns after the shutdown is complete. During the PM_POST_SUSPEND phase, the driver simply notifies the daemon and returns. The daemon boots those cards that were previously online during the suspend phase.
