the PM Runtime should allow to wake up parent when child is resumed if everything is configured properly.

rpm_resume()
...
     if (!parent && dev->parent) {
  --> here

So, hence PM runtime calls are moved to from drivers to net_core wouldn't be more correct approach to
enable PM runtime for netdev->dev and lets PM runtime do the job?

But, to be honest, I'm not sure adding PM runtime manipulation to the net core is a good idea -
at minimum it might be tricky and required very careful approach (especially in err path).
For example, even in this patch you do not check return value of pm_runtime_get_sync() and in
commit bd869245a3dc ("net: core: try to runtime-resume detached device in __dev_open") also actualy.


The TI CPSW driver may also be placed in non reachable state when netdev is closed (and even lose context),
but we do not use netif_device_detach() (so netdev is accessible through netdev_ops/ethtool_ops),
but instead wake up device by runtime PM for allowed operations or just save requested configuration which
is applied at netdev->open() time then.
I feel that using netif_device_detach() in PM runtime sounds like a too heavy approach ;)

huh, see it's merged already, so...
