SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH] PM / QoS: add pm_qos_update_request_timeout API

Hi,

I need to know what the other people in the CC list think about that. It would
definitely help if you described a use case.

Could that be a different time unit instead of jiffies?

Well, what about "saved_value"?

I'd call it pm_qos_work_fn(), so that it's clear what it is.

That may result in setting the target value to an unwanted one temporarily.
Namely, if pm_qos_timeout() is already running, it will switch back to the
"original" target value before the new one is set. The PM QoS users may see
the "restored" value and use it in their decision making. Do we care?

Adding brances here doesn't belong to this patch.

Please use __func__ in messages like this.

It seems that if pm_qos_timeout() has been started already, it will overwrite
the value that we've just set, or am I missing something?
