PCI does it doesn't mean it is a rule that bus code has to enable the device before probe.
At least platform bus doesn't seem to do it as part of of_platform_populate().

see __device_attach() and driver_probe_device() in drivers/base/dd.c

It does a pm_runtime_get_sync() on dev->parent but not on dev.

Also, from section 5 of Documentation/power/runtime_pm.txt

"In addition to that, the initial runtime PM status of all devices is
'suspended', but it need not reflect the actual physical state of the device.
Thus, if the device is initially active (i.e. it is able to process I/O), its
runtime PM status must be changed to 'active', with the help of
pm_runtime_set_active(), before pm_runtime_enable() is called for the device."

"Note, if the device may execute pm_runtime calls during the probe (such as
if it is registers with a subsystem that may call back in) then the
pm_runtime_get_sync() call paired with a pm_runtime_put() call will be
appropriate to ensure that the device is not put back to sleep during the
probe. This can happen with systems such as the network device layer."

So looks like we can't assume that the device is "active" when probe() is called.
Which means, we need to do

enable optional clocks;

pm_runtime_forbid(); if we don't yet want runtime suspend/resume.
pm_runtime_put(); if we want runtime suspend/resume support.

I don't think we should be calling pm_runtime_set_active() as we can't be sure of the
initial state of the device for different buses.
