Definitely don't use SYNC_STATE_ONLY.

To give some context, drivers themselves are only expected to use
STATELESS links. Only the driver core is supposed to use MANAGED (if
you don't use STATELESS, it's MANAGED by default) links. And
SYNC_STATE_ONLY makes sense only for MANAGED links.

Also, as the SYNC_STATE_ONLY documentation says, it only affect
sync_state() behavior and doesn't affect suspend/resume in any way.

Yup, I don't have enough context of the dependencies here to suggest a
good fix. But if device_link_add() is failing with STATELESS and not
failing with SYNC_STATE_ONLY, I'm pretty sure you have a cyclic
dependency between these devices when you create this link. Keep in
mind that it can be a cycle involving more than 2 devices -- A -> B ->
C -> A. And cycles don't make sense when you are trying to order
suspend/resume. Looks like the new link is wrong or an existing link
is wrong. If the dependencies are actually correct in hardware, then
maybe your hardware device needs to be split into multiple devices so
that you don't have cycles and can suspend in a meaningful way?

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
Saravana
