Subject[PATCH] USB :core :Prevent USB devices to autosuspend while setting interface
From: Abhijeet Kumar <>

Runtime resume USB device in order to ensure that PM framework knows
that the we might be using the device in a short time and doesn't
autosuspend the device while we update it's interface. Without this
change, if device autosuspends and the kernel polling for block
devices is disabled through sysfs at runtime or through bootargs, then
storage devices might never unmount since the disconnect IRQ wont be
kicked at all.
