[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 5/9] scsi: ufs: Make sure clk scaling happens only when HBA is runtime ACTIVE

[ Upstream commit 73cc291c270248567245f084dcdf5078069af6b5 ]

If someone plays with the UFS clk scaling devfreq governor through sysfs,
ufshcd_devfreq_scale may be called even when HBA is not runtime ACTIVE.
This can lead to unexpected error. We cannot just protect it by calling
pm_runtime_get_sync() because that may cause a race condition since HBA
runtime suspend ops need to suspend clk scaling. To fix this call
pm_runtime_get_noresume() and check HBA's runtime status. Only proceed if
HBA is runtime ACTIVE, otherwise just bail.
