Yes, the question is how to write the code for both with and without
CONFIG_PM (or CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME).

Right now, we have a code like below, pushing the initialization in an
async work and let the probe returning quickly.

hda_tegra_probe() {
....
pm_runtime_enable();
schedule_work();
return;
}

hda_tegra_probe_work() {
pm_runtime_get_sync();
....
pm_runtime_put_sync();
}

Then it truned outhis code lacks of the clock initialization when
runtime PM isn't enabled. Normally it's done via runtime resume

hda_tegra_runtime_resume() {
hda_tegra_enable_clocks();
....
}

And now the question is what is the standard idiom in such a case.

IMO, calling pm_runtime_resume() inside the probe function looks
weird, and my preference was to initialize the clocks explicitly, then
enable runtime PM. But if using pm_runtime_resume() in the proc
should be seen as a standard procedure, I'm fine with that.


thanks,

Takashi
