    Subject[PATCH 11/15] PM / Domains: Do not measure start time for "irq safe" devices

    The genpd_start_dev() routine used by pm_genpd_runtime_resume()
    to put "irq safe" devices into the full power state measures the
    time necessary to "start" the device and updates its PM QoS timing
    data if necessary. This may lead to a deadlock if the given device
    is a clock source and genpd_start_dev() is invoked from within the
    clock source's .enable() routine, which will happen if that routine
    uses pm_runtime_get_sync(), for example, to ensure that the device
    is operational.

    For this reason, introduce a special routine analogous to
    genpd_start_dev(), called genpd_start_dev_no_timing(), that doesn't
    carry out the time measurement, and make pm_genpd_runtime_resume()
    use it instead of genpd_start_dev() to power up "irq safe" devices.
