You are welcome, but please, stop top-posting.

Correct.

How come to wrong conclusion? We are considering error path. What does
documentation say about this?

Because in error case there is no need to go through all code patch to
be sure that the device is idling. Moreover, consider below case

CPU1: ...somewhere in the code...
pm_runtime_get() // with success!
...see below...
pm_runtime_put()

CPU2: ...on parallel thread...
ret = pm_runtime_get_sync() // failed!
if (ret)
pm_runtime_put() // oi vei, we put device into sleep

So, there is a potential issue.
