I looked at the code and what actually happens here is the runtime_suspend
and runtime_resume callbacks aren't set is that the first pm_runtime_put()
call itself succeeds because checking the the runtime_suspend callback will
be done in the work queue function. This leaves the device in RPM_ACTIVE
state, which I don't think is a problem since the driver did not have
explicit functions to control the device power state.

Further pm_runtime_put() and pm_runtime_get() calls will succeed because
the device is in RPM_ACTIVE state.

So I see no reason to set the callbacks if they would not actually control
regulators, clocks or GPIOs required by the device.

Cc linux-pm.
