For reasons having nothing to do with Allen's suggested change, I
wonder if we shouldn't replace this line with something like:

- else if (dev->power.disable_depth == 1 && dev->power.is_suspended
+ else if (dev->power.disable > 0 && !dev->power.is_suspended
&& dev->power.runtime_status == RPM_ACTIVE)
retval = 1;

It seems that I've been bitten by this several times in the past.
When a device is disabled for runtime PM, and more or less permanently
stuck in the RPM_ACTIVE state, calls to pm_runtime_resume() or
pm_runtime_get_sync() shouldn't fail.

For example, suppose some devices of a certain type support runtime
power management but others don't. We naturally want to call
pm_runtime_disable() for the ones that don't. But we also want the
same driver to work for all the devices, which means that
pm_runtime_get_sync() should return success -- otherwise the driver
will think that something has gone wrong.

Rafael, what do you think?
