My stance is that the driver is responsible of enabling and managing
runtime PM for its hardware block(s).

Runtime PM in the core should only be added if the core needs to
be aware about it, such as is the case when e.g. a block device
needs to drain its write buffer before going to runtime sleep.

I fail so see why the GPIO core need to be aware about this.
