I think it's better to let PM core to decide.

I don't think this is right.
Isn't E1000_WUFC_LNKC already set for runtime suspend?
What if WoL doesn't have it set?

There's a discussion on enable runtime PM by default for all PCI devices.
So removing this workaround will expose the bug for users.

Let me get the system with the bug (Latitude 5500) and see if latest ACPI code can fix the GPE bug.
