Frankly, I would rather fix the runtime_get_sync() instead of fixing the
return path everywhere in the kernel. The current behavior of the
pm_runtime_get_sync() is completely counter-intuitive then. I bet that
in the 99% of the places where it is being called assume that no special
fixup is needed in case of failure. This is one of the most common
runtime PM related function and it is really a common pattern in the
drivers to call:

pm_runtime_get_sync()

do something with the hardware

pm_runtime_put()

Do you really want to fix the error paths of the all such calls?
