PM / Runtime: Rework the "runtime idle" helper routine
The "runtime idle" helper routine, rpm_idle(), currently ignores return values from .runtime_idle() callbacks executed by it. However, it turns out that many subsystems use pm_generic_runtime_idle() which checks the return value of the driver's callback and executes pm_runtime_suspend() for the device unless that value is not 0. If that logic is moved to rpm_idle() instead, pm_generic_runtime_idle() can be dropped and its users will not need any .runtime_idle() callbacks any more. Moreover, the PCI, SCSI, and SATA subsystems' .runtime_idle() routines, pci_pm_runtime_idle(), scsi_runtime_idle(), and ata_port_runtime_idle(), respectively, as well as a few drivers' ones may be simplified if rpm_idle() calls rpm_suspend() after 0 has been returned by the .runtime_idle() callback executed by it. To reduce overall code bloat, make the changes described above. Tested-by: Mika Westerberg <mika.westerberg@linux.intel.com> Tested-by: Kevin Hilman <khilman@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Rafael J.
