Well suspending hardware that has (lost) events pending is wrong. So we
need to do this delayed hardware check at least when runtime suspending
the device.

Not sure if other places make sense to do this check as we need to wait
about 50ms for hardware to autoidle, and only then check if there are
events pending, and then clear the pending events. The PM runtime suspend
function seems like a natural place to do this.

If PM runtime autosuspend is disabled, the issue with last pressed key
getting stuck sometimes can still happen like it did earlier. That issue
has always been there for past 10 or so years and nobody else bothered to
fix it so I'm not too worried about it.

With this series we already fix the bigger issue anyways where rapidly
pressing the keys would have the previous key stuck. Like rapid pressing
of shift shift j would produce an upper case J instead of j.

Naturally there is nothing stopping us from adding additional other places
to call omap4_keypad_scan_keys() as needed now though if you have some
good ideas for that :)
