I'm not sure pm_runtime_get_supplier() is correct either. That
feels like we're relying on the GPU driver knowing the internal
details of how the device links are configured.

Is there some way to have the GPU driver know in its runtime PM
resume hook that it doesn't need to be powered on because it
isn't actively drawing anything or processing commands? I'm
thinking of the code calling pm_runtime_get() as proposed around
the IOMMU unmap path in the GPU driver and then having the
runtime PM resume hook in the GPU driver return some special
value to indicate that it didn't really resume because it didn't
need to and to treat the device as runtime suspended but not
return an error. Then the runtime PM core can keep track of that
and try to power the GPU on again when another pm_runtime_get()
is called on the GPU device.

This keeps the consumer API the same, always pm_runtime_get(),
but leaves the device driver logic of what to do when the GPU
doesn't need to power on to the runtime PM hook where the driver
has all the information.
