Subject: [PATCH v4 3/8] PCI: Don't block runtime PM for Thunderbolt host
 hotplug ports

Hotplug ports generally block their parents from suspending to D3hot as
otherwise their interrupts couldn't be delivered.

An exception are Thunderbolt host controllers:  They have a separate
GPIO pin to side-band signal plug events even if the controller is
powered down or its parent ports are suspended to D3.  They can be told
apart from Thunderbolt controllers in attached devices by checking if
they're situated below a non-Thunderbolt device (typically a root port,
or the downstream port of a PCIe switch in the case of the MacPro6,1).

To enable runtime PM for Thunderbolt on the Mac, the downstream bridges
of a host controller must not block runtime PM on the upstream bridge as
power to the chip is only cut once the upstream bridge has suspended.
Amend the condition in pci_dev_check_d3cold() accordingly.
