Subject[PATCH 2/4 v5] memstick: Prevent memstick host from getting runtime suspended during card detection
We can use MEMSTICK_POWER_{ON,OFF} along with pm_runtime_{get,put}
helpers to let memstick host support runtime pm.

There's a small window between memstick_detect_change() and its queued
work, memstick_check(). In this window the rpm count may go down to zero
before the memstick host powers on, so the host can be inadvertently

Increment rpm count before calling memstick_check(), and decrement rpm
count afterward, as now we are sure the memstick host should be
suspended or not.
