There's a guiding assumption in this generic PM domain layer that the
runtime PM callbacks need only be called if power to the underlying PM
domain is actually being cut. As a result, devices no longer have a
callback called for other low-power states where the power may not
actually be cut (a.k.a low-power with memory & logic retention.)

However, there are devices (at least on OMAP, but I presume on all SoCs)
where the driver will need to do other "stuff" for *all* low-power
transitions, not just the power-off ones (e.g. device specific idle mode
registers, clearing device-specific events/state that prevent low power
transitions, etc.)

Because of this, I don't currently see how to use these generic PM
domains on devices with multiple power states since the runtime PM
callbacks are only called for a subset of the power states.

I haven't given this too much thought yet (especially the system PM
aspects), but in order for generic PM domains to be more broadly useful
for runtime PM, I'm starting to think that this series should add
another set of callbacks: .power_off, .power_on or something similar.
The .runtime_suspend/.runtime_resume callbacks would then be used for
all power states and the .power_off/.power_on callbacks used only when
power is actually cut.

The start/stop device calls should probably be included inside this 'if'
since there's no reason to restart and re-stop the device if there is no
callback to be run.

Some drivers have alterntive ways of saving context (shadow registers,
manual save/restore per-xfer, etc.) and thus have no callbacks for
context save/restore.

Similar to the 'save' case, the start/stop device calls should also be
included inside this 'if'.
