Subject[PATCH v2 0/4] ata port runtime power management support
Hi, all

These 4 patches add ata port runtime pm support.


v2 is totally different than v1.

v1 performed ata port runtime pm through scsi layer.
Added hook to scsi host runtime suspend/resume code.

I realized that this is not the natural way to do ata port runtime pm.
It does not deal with the races with ata port system suspend/resume.

With v2, ata port is made to be parent device of scsi host.

Currently, the device tree of ata port and scsi host looks as below,

/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2 (ahci controller)
|-- ata1 (ata port)
|-- host0 (scsi host)
|-- target0:0:0 (scsi target)
|-- 0:0:0:0 (disk)

v2 changes it to:

/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2 (ahci controller)
|-- ata1 (ata port)
|-- host0 (scsi host)
|-- target0:0:0 (scsi target)
|-- 0:0:0:0 (disk)

So ata port runtime PM will happen as:

disk suspend --> scsi target suspend --> scsi host suspend --> ata port

This is much cleaner and natural.

Lin Ming (4):
ata: make ata port as parent device of scsi host
scsi: add flag to skip the runtime PM calls on host in EH
ata: add ata port system PM callbacks
ata: add ata port runtime PM callbacks
