Thanks a lot for your feedback.

Ah, I see. You'd like to call pm_runtime_get_sync() from .probe(), but that
sees the usage counter different from zero and exits immediately.

OTOH, I think we should prevent suspends from racing with .probe() at the core
level. Hmm.

One possible approach could be to call pm_runtime_resume() from
sh_mobile_lcdc_probe() instead of pm_runtime_put_noidle(). Then, the platform
code will have a chance to turn the device on and the later pm_runtime_get*()
and pm_runtime_put*() calls will be balanced. Of course, in that case the
pm_runtime_get_noresume() in sh_mobile_lcdc_probe() won't be necessary any
more. Am I overlooking anything?

Rafael
