I would argue that the serdev_device_write_flush() call in
qca_power_shutdown() is related with/needed for sending the power off
pulse, hence it should be part of qca_send_power_pulse(), unless it
adds a significant overhead and we really want to call it only in the
shutdown case.

Flushing the buffer should be fairly lightweight and power pulses are
only sent when the device is switched on or off, so the overhead
should be negligible. You *could* restrict the flush to the power off
pulse, assuming that the driver always re-opens the port in
qca_wcn3990_init() (tests with this patch set suggest this might not
be needed) and that serdev_device_open() flushes the buffer (which
seems a sane assumption). Yet given the minimal overhead I'd suggest
to not make assumptions about what happened previously in other code
and avoid the clutter of a condition that doesn't add much value.

Cheers

Matthias
