True, but code is code, and even if you don't know what he was
thinking, it's clear there's something wrong.

Are you sure it's "musb-hdrc", and not "musb-omap2430" the one
accessing the relevant address-space? From the runtime_pm
documentation it looks like only the probe function should deal with

If "musb-hdrc" was truly accessing these registers, then I would get
the same failure because the clocks are turned off, but I don't...
