Could you shed light on it? I had a quick browsing of pm code, but it
is a big function, and I got lost in it.
If the above code causes failure, then does it imply that the seq in
devices_kset should be the same as dpm_list? But in device_shutdown(),
it only intersect with pm by
pm_runtime_get_noresume(dev) and pm_runtime_barrier(dev). How do these
function affect the seq in dpm_list? Need your help to see how to
handle this issue.

Thanks and regards,
Pingfan
