I took the time to really look at the problems you are experiencing
with pm runtime in hw_breackpoint.c this weekend.  The coresight
patchset, when supplemented with PM runtime awareness, will fix that
problem *only* when traces are activated.  The other obvious condition
is that other component using the same power domain are also converted
to using runtime PM.

That being said, the coresight framework and breakpoint handler code
are two different subsystem.  Their only commonality is that they make
use of the debug registers (and not even the same ones).  As such (and
in my opinion) the code in hw_breakpoint should be getting its own pm
runtime reference without relying on the coresight subsystem.  As
indicated above, that would only work in some cases.

Supplementing hw_breakpoint to interact with the runtime PM may prove
trickier than it seems... I'm especially worried about the
non-blocking requirement inherent to using "smp_call_function()".  I'm
stepping forward to look into that problem but before doing so I need
to finish runtime PM on coresight.
