Just to clarify, you won't see any power saving effects until you
implement power_save and power_restore on the SPI level. See patch 2/2
for how I did it for SDIO (it builds upon quite a bit of hard work
implementing runtime power management in the MMC layer).

Testing is appreciated anyway, because the driver shape changed in
general with this patch: e.g. it used to let you scan while the
interface is down, and now it doesn't. Would be good to have
additional confirmation that nothing has broken :)
