For the on-chip SoC devices we're managing with OMAP, we're currently
only using one set: post ops on [runtime_]suspend and pre ops on
[runtime_]resume.

However, I could imagine (at least conceptually) using the pre ops on
suspend to do some constraints checking and/or possibly some
management/notification of dependent devices. Another possiblity
(although possibly racy) would be using the pre ops on suspend to
initiate some high-latency operations.

I guess the main problem with two sets is wasted space. e.g, if I move
OMAP to this (already hacking on it) there will be only 2 functions used
in post ops: [runtime_]suspend() and 2 used in pre ops [runtime_]_resume().
