OK.

OK.

Good point.

I realize that this is not the natural way to do ata port runtime pm.
Hooking it to scsi host runtime pm is not good. It does not deal with
the races with system suspend/resume of host controller.

How about making ata port as the parent device of scsi host?
Then, for example, the runtime suspend happens as below,

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

Current device tree is:
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/
|-- ata1
|-- host0

After the change, the tree will become as:
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/ata1/
|-- host0

The tricky part is ata port(parent device) suspend need to schedule scsi
EH which will resume scsi host(child device). Then the child device
resume will in turn make parent device resume first. This is kind of
recursive.

We can fix this by adding a flag somewhere to tell scsi EH don't resume
the host in ata port pm request handling case.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Lin Ming
