That condition is there specifically to take care of the system suspend
code path. It means that if runtime PM is disabled, but it only has been
disabled by the system suspend code path, we should treat the device as
"active" (ie. return 1). That won't work after the proposed change.

I guess drivers that want to work with devices where runtime PM may be
disabled can just check the return value of rpm_resume() for -EACCES?
