Yes, the runtime PM, auto suspend, and PM Qos are all about the
suspend/resume behaviors of the system or related to power states such
as D0/D3 of the device. But these are totally different from the ASPM
L0s/L1 for link states. Entering/exiting the ASPM is pure hardware
behavior on the link layer and is not handled by any codes in
drivers/mmc/core or drivers/mmc/host. We'd like to try to modify the
patch by your opinions, but we are also confused about what or where
suits our use case best. So we wonder how to start the modification
and may need some suggestions to deal with the work, sorry.

Thank you.

Best regards,
