Subject[Bug 203297] Synaptics touchpad TM-3127 functionality broken by PCI runtime power management patch on 4.20.2

Regression, suspected but as yet unconfirmed cause:

c5eb1190074c ("PCI / PM: Allow runtime PM without callback functions")

backported to 4.20 stable as 39e1be324c2f.

> Since i2c-i801.c doesn't need to do anything device-specific for runtime

> This fixes the runtime PM regression on i2c-i801.c.
