Aha, sorry, a typo here.

Yes, thanks.

You are right.

Actually, I am thinking about removing all the pm_runtime_set_active()
codes in both scsi_bus_resume_common() and scsi_dev_type_resume() - we
don't need to forcibly set the runtime PM status to RPM_ACTIVE for
SCSI host/target or SCSI devices.

Whenever we access one SCSI device, either block layer or somewhere in
the path (e.g. throgh sg IOCTL, sg_open() calls
should runtime resume the device first, and the runtime PM framework
sure device's gets resumed as well. Thus, the pm_runtime_set_active()
redundant. What do you think?


Can Guo.
