I think better place to have this fixed is in
drivers/hid/i2c-hid/i2c-hid-core.c by forcing the adapter device active
when communicating with such touchpad.

In that way only bus where touchpad is connected stays active, not all
and makes sure issue is handled also if that touchpad is ever connected
to any other I2C adapter than Designware.

I did something similar in the commit 72bfcee11cf8 ("i2c: Prevent
runtime suspend of adapter when Host Notify is required"). Not exactly
same issue but similar idea.

By looking at i2c-hid-core.c I saw a few i2c-hid devices have
I2C_HID_QUIRK_NO_RUNTIME_PM. Could you test how does this Goodix behave
if only i2c-hid device runtime PM is prevented not I2C adapter?

A very quick test would be to comment out those lines below:
