OK so that's a good test case. AFAIK, we should have DSS idle
and have the SoC hit at least core retention with DSI command mode
displays. I don't know if this patch would block DSS autoidle then
or not.. I'm guessing 80% chance that we still need DSS hit runtime
suspend to enter SoC idle states meaning this patch would not
affect it :)
