    A (IDLE)
    / \

    Suppose C is to be resumed. This means first in case of A the request
    to suspend would be cancelled. Here you drop the locks:

    + && (dev->parent->power.runtime_status == RPM_IDLE
    + || dev->parent->power.runtime_status == RPM_SUSPENDING
    + || dev->parent->power.runtime_status == RPM_SUSPENDED)) {
    + spin_unlock_irqrestore(&dev->power.lock, flags);
    + spin_unlock_irqrestore(&dev->parent->power.lock, parent_flags);
    + /* We have to resume the parent first. */
    + pm_request_resume(dev->parent);

    But after pm_request_resume() returns there's no means to make sure
    nothing alters it back to RPM_SUSPENDED. The workqueue doesn't help
    you because you've scheduled nothing by that time. The suspension will
    work because C is still in RPM_SUSPENDED.
