Subject: Re: Re: [PATCH] drm/panfrost: fix runtime pm imbalance on error

Hi Steve,

There are two bailing out points in panfrost_job_hw_submit(): one is 
the error path beginning from pm_runtime_get_sync(), the other one is 
the error path beginning from WARN_ON() in the if statement. The pm 
imbalance fixed in this patch is between these two paths. I think the 
caller of panfrost_job_hw_submit() cannot distinguish this imbalance 
outside this function. 

panfrost_job_timedout() calls pm_runtime_put_noidle() for every job it 
finds, but all jobs are added to the pfdev->jobs just before calling
panfrost_job_hw_submit(). Therefore I think the imbalance still exists.
But I'm not very sure if we should add pm_runtime_put on the error path
after pm_runtime_get_sync(), or remove pm_runtime_put one the error path
after WARN_ON(). 

As for the problem about panfrost_devfreq_record_busy(), this may be a 
new bug and requires independent patch to fix it.

Regards,
Dinghao
