    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
