Subject[PATCH] Driver core: leave runtime PM enabled during system shutdown
Disabling all runtime PM during system shutdown turns out not to be a
good idea, because some devices may need to be woken up from a
low-power state at that time.

The whole point of disabling runtime PM for system shutdown was to
prevent untimely runtime-suspend method calls. This patch (as1504)
accomplishes the same result by incrementing the usage count for each
device and waiting for ongoing runtime-PM callbacks to finish. This
is what we already do during system suspend and hibernation, which
makes sense since the shutdown method is pretty much a legacy analog
of the pm->poweroff method.

This fixes a regression on some OMAP systems.
