Yes, is_suspended flag will be set by __device_suspend(). But runtime PM can be disabled in pm_genpd_prepare():

914 static int pm_genpd_prepare(struct device *dev){
...
956 /*
957 * The PM domain must be in the GPD_STATE_ACTIVE state at this point,
958 * so pm_genpd_poweron() will return immediately, but if the device
959 * is suspended (e.g. it's been stopped by genpd_stop_dev()), we need
960 * to make it operational.
961 */
962 pm_runtime_resume(dev);
963 __pm_runtime_disable(dev, false);
...
978 }

And there is a gap between pm_genpd_prepare() and __device_suspend(), during which is_suspended flag is *not* yet set but runtime PM is disabled and device status is RPM_ACTIVE.

The existing code return 1 for case is_suspended flag is set. That means __device_suspend() has been called and device is not in operational state. Whereas the case I mentioned above is before device is suspended.
It's dangerous to access device if it's in suspended state, so I propose only allowing access to a device if it's not suspended (i.e. value of "is_suspneded" flag is false).
