So to my untrained eye it looks like it should be applied like this (top to
bottom) using the reverse commit order from the mainline kernel:

e529192 PM: Introduce generic "noirq" callback routines for subsystems (v2)
455716e PM / Runtime: Update documentation of interactions with system sleep
1e2ef05 PM: Limit race conditions between runtime PM and system sleep (v2)
f3393b6 PM / Runtime: Add new helper function: pm_runtime_status_suspended()

So (2) documents the problem, (3) fixes it, whereas (1) and (4) makes
it possible
to write proper _noirq() code that does not race, IIRC.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
