I think this is an interesting change, but I wonder if you really
understand how this affects the order of how devices may be
suspended/resumed?

Also, I believe you didn't answer my question for the earlier version
of the patch, so let me try again.

There are a strict dependency chain when suspending/resuming devices
that must be maintained. Currently this is controlled via device
registration/probe order.

An SDIO func driver/device must always be suspended *before* the SDIO
card device. Additionally the corresponding MMC host, must be
suspended after the SDIO card device. Vice verse applies to the resume
sequence.

As this patch enables asynchronous suspend, I am worried that it will
break this dependency chain. What do you think?

Kind regards
Ulf Hansson
