Hi,

Thanks to point this out. I change the code to do ata port runtime
suspend/resume through scsi layer.

scsi host runtime suspend/resume framework is already there(scsi_pm.c).
So I only need to insert hooks for ata port in
scsi_runtime_suspend/resume(...).

But I found a live lock when testing my patch.

<scsi host runtime suspend>
scsi_autopm_put_host
pm_runtime_put_sync
<scsi_host runtime pm status updated to RPM_SUSPENDING>
......
<call libata hook to do suspend>
<wake up scsi EH to handle suspend>
<wait for scsi EH ...>

<scsi EH wake up>
scsi_error_handler
<resume scsi host>
scsi_autopm_get_host
pm_runtime_get_sync
.....
<sleep to wait for the ongoing scsi host suspend>

libata schedules scsi EH to handle suspend, then dead lock happens
because scsi EH in turn waits for the ongoing suspend.

Any idea how to resolve this dead lock?

Thanks,
Lin Ming
