Am not sure if it is clear to you that the GPIO resources like clock,
debounce clk are per bank wise and not per GPIO line. So doing 32
get/put per bank is stupid. runtime pm is for managing pm
resources and if the pm resource is per bank, it has to be
handled per bank.

It's useless.

I don't think so.
