I thought it was the case that runtime PM was only disabled during the
'late' phase now.  Isn't that enough to allow runtime callbacks in the
normal suspend/resume hooks now?   /me looks.

oh, wait.  Ee still have the _get_noresume() in device_prepare().  hmm

Either way, I'm not not a big fan of new functions.  Personally, I think
subsystems/busses/pm_domains should be able to opt out of the PM core
behavior that blocks runtime PM transitions during system suspend.
Something like the (untested) hack below.  That way, we could avoid the
need for new helper functions.
