My concern still is that it will be confusing, because people won't read the
documentation carefully enough and will confuse "runtime PM never used" with
"hardware can't do PM". I'm not sure how to make that more clear, though.

Also we have the no_callbacks flag and I wonder if/how it is related to the
new one. Do we still need both?

In addition to that, I think that "hardware can't do PM" should apply to the
handling of system suspend resume too.
