Subject: [PATCHv3 0/4] Get rid of pm_runtime_irq_safe() for 8250_omap


Here are v3 patches to get rid of pm_runtime_irq_safe() for the 8250_omap
driver. Based on comments from Andy, Johan and Greg, I improved a bunch of
things as listed below.

For removing the pm_runtime_irq_safe() usage, serial TX is the last
remaining issue. We deal with TX by waking up the port and returning 0
bytes written from write_room() and write() if the port is not available
because of PM runtime autoidle.

This series also removes the dependency to Andy's pending generic serial
layer PM runtime patches, and hopefully makes that work a bit easier :)



Chganges since v2:

- Use locking instead of atomic_t as suggested by Greg

Changes since v1:

- Separated out line discipline patches, n_tty -EAGAIN change I still
  need to retest

- Changed prep_tx() to more generic wakeup() as also flow control needs it

- Changed over to using wakeup() with device driver runtime PM instead
  of write_room()

- Added runtime_suspended flag for drivers and generic serial layer PM
  to use

Tony Lindgren (4):
  serial: core: Add wakeup() and start_pending_tx() for power management
  serial: 8250: Implement wakeup for TX and use it for 8250_omap
  serial: 8250_omap: Require a valid wakeirq for deeper idle states
  serial: 8250_omap: Drop the use of pm_runtime_irq_safe()
