This patch breaks the HDMI audio detection at least on some platforms (Lenovo
P50 for example) with nouveau and the proprietary nvidia driver. Those laptops
have the external HDMI/DP ports connected to dGPU instead the iGPU. The ACPI
PR3 is set.

The runtime PM off fixes this problem:

echo on > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000\:01\:00.1/power/control

But I don't think that it's the best solution. My proposal is to create a pr3
check blacklist to keep power for the HDMI audio for those machines. Also we
may add a new module parameter for snd-hda-intel to control this. Other ideas?
