Subject: Re: [PATCH] drm/bridge: fix reference count leaks due to
 pm_runtime_get_sync()

Hi Aditya,

(CC'ing Rafael)

Thank you for the patch.

I've seen lots of similar patches recently. Instead of mass-patching the
drivers this way, shouldn't pm_runtime_get_sync() (and similar
functions) decrease the refcount on their failure path ? That would
require patching drivers that already handle this issue, but I believe
that would cause less churn, and more importantly, avoid the issue once
and for good for new code.
