I haven't read this in depth, but... if you want to support runtime PM
for your spmi devices, then I suggest that you also include the fragments
to setup runtime PM in the bus-level probe handler and clean it up in
the bus-level remove handler.

What that means is doing what PCI, AMBA and similar buses do:

pm_runtime_get_noresume(dev);
pm_runtime_set_active(dev);
pm_runtime_enable(dev);

ret = driver->probe(dev);
if (ret != 0) {
pm_runtime_disable(dev);
pm_runtime_set_suspended(dev);
pm_runtime_put_noidle(dev);
}

and:

pm_runtime_get_sync(dev);
ret = driver->remove(dev);
pm_runtime_put_noidle(dev);

pm_runtime_disable(dev);
pm_runtime_set_suspended(dev);
pm_runtime_put_noidle(dev);

What this means is that your devices get runtime enabled by default,
but they have to do a pm_runtime_put() or similar in their probe
function to benefit from it and a balancing pm_runtime_get() in
their remove method.

The set_active() call above may need to be conditional upon whether
the device really is in a powered up state at that point or not.

Others have made comments on various other issues so I won't repeat
those points here.
