PM: Provide generic subsystem-level callbacks
There are subsystems whose power management callbacks only need to invoke the callbacks provided by device drivers. Still, their system sleep PM callbacks should play well with the runtime PM callbacks, so that devices suspended at run time can be left in that state for a system sleep transition. Provide a set of generic PM callbacks for such subsystems and define convenience macros for populating dev_pm_ops structures. Signed-off-by: Rafael J. Wysocki <rjw@sisk.pl>

+7. Generic subsystem callbacks
+
+Subsystems may wish to conserve code space by using the set of generic power
+management callbacks provided by the PM core, defined in
+driver/base/power/generic_ops.c:
+
+ int pm_generic_runtime_idle(struct device *dev);
+ - invoke the ->runtime_idle() callback provided by the driver of this
+ device, if defined, and call pm_runtime_suspend() for this device if the
+ return value is 0 or the callback is not defined
+
+ int pm_generic_runtime_suspend(struct device *dev);
+ - invoke the ->runtime_suspend() callback provided by the driver of this
+ device and return its result, or return -EINVAL if not defined
+
+ int pm_generic_runtime_resume(struct device *dev);
+ - invoke the ->runtime_resume() callback provided by the driver of this
+ device and return its result, or return -EINVAL if not defined
+
+ int pm_generic_suspend(struct device *dev);
+ - if the device has not been suspended at run time, invoke the ->suspend()
+ callback provided by its driver and return its result, or return 0 if not
+ defined
+
+ int pm_generic_resume(struct device *dev);
+ - invoke the ->resume() callback provided by the driver of this device and,
+ if successful, change the device's runtime PM status to 'active'
+
+ int pm_generic_freeze(struct device *dev);
+ - if the device has not been suspended at run time, invoke the ->freeze()
+ callback provided by its driver and return its result, or return 0 if not
+ defined
+
+ int pm_generic_thaw(struct device *dev);
+ - if the device has not been suspended at run time, invoke the ->thaw()
+ callback provided by its driver and return its result, or return 0 if not
+ defined
+
+ int pm_generic_poweroff(struct device *dev);
+ - if the device has not been suspended at run time, invoke the ->poweroff()
+ callback provided by its driver and return its result, or return 0 if not
+ defined
+
+ int pm_generic_restore(struct device *dev);
+ - invoke the ->restore() callback provided by the driver of this device and,
+ if successful, change the device's runtime PM status to 'active'
+
+These functions can be assigned to the ->runtime_idle(), ->runtime_suspend(),
+->runtime_resume(), ->suspend(), ->resume(), ->freeze(), ->thaw(), ->poweroff(),
+or ->restore() callback pointers in the subsystem-level dev_pm_ops structures.
+
+If a subsystem wishes to use all of them at the same time, it can simply assign
+the GENERIC_SUBSYS_PM_OPS macro, defined in include/linux/pm.h, to its
+dev_pm_ops structure pointer.
+
+Device drivers that wish to use the same function as a system suspend, freeze,
+poweroff and run-time suspend callback, and similarly for system resume, thaw,
+restore, and run-time resume, can achieve this with the help of the
+UNIVERSAL_DEV_PM_OPS macro defined in include/linux/pm.h (possibly setting its
+last argument to NULL).
