Apologize for jumping into the discussion.

I have a couple of ideas, that may simplify/improve things related to the above.

1) Would it be easier if genpd calls ->set_performance_state(0) before
it is about to call the ->power_off() callback? Actually Viresh wanted
that from the start, but I thought it was useless.

2) When device are becoming runtime suspended, the ->runtime_suspend()
callback of genpd is invoked (genpd_runtime_suspend()). However, in
there we don't care to re-evaluate the votes on the performance level,
but instead rely on the corresponding driver for the device to drop
the vote. I think it would be a good idea of managing this internally
in genpd instead, thus, depending on if the aggregated vote can be
decreased we should call ->set_performance_state(new-vote). Of
course, once the device get runtime resumed, the votes needs to be
restored for the device.

What do you think?

[...]

Kind regards
Uffe
