My apologies for the huge and unacceptable delay. I have re-started
looking at this several times, but just never got the point of writing
a proper reply. Let me do this now, better late than never I guess.

In general, I think this problem (nicely described by Fabrice), should
be solved in the runtime PM core, without having to involve drivers
for parents/childs. I have looked into that, but I don't have a patch
to propose, at least not yet.

FYI, I have also stumbled over the same problem, for a card controller
(parent), serving both sd and memstick cards. For that case, we simply
decided to skip using autosuspend for the child devices (represented
by an sd host and a memstick host), not optimal, but there were other
reasons why we decided for this approach as well.

That said, I also think the solution proposed in $subject patch, which
uses the ->runtime_idle() callback for the parent is perfectly fine,
at least until we have figured out something that can replace it.
