Subject: Re: Re: [PATCH] [v2] media: staging: tegra-vde: fix runtime pm
 imbalance on error

We need to make sure if pm_runtime_get_sync() is designed with
such behavior before modifying it.  

I received a response from Rafael when I commited a similar patch:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/5/20/1100
It seems that this behavior is intentional and needs to be kept.

Regards,
Dinghao
