Well, I agree. I didn't remember that the callback had been added for
a purpose and hence my "ack" for that patch.

What about applying the appended patch (hopefully, the build warnings should
be fixed properly this time)?

Subject: SDIO / PM: Add empty bus-level suspend/resume callbacks

Suspend methods provided by SDIO drivers are not supposed to be
called by the PM core. Instead, when the SDIO core gets to suspend
a device's ancestor, it calls the device driver's suspend routine.
However, the PM core executes suspend callback routines directly for
device drivers whose bus types don't provide suspend callbacks.
In consequece, because the SDIO bus type doesn't provide a suspend
callback, the SDIO drivers' suspend routines will be executed by the
PM core (which shouldn't happen).

To prevent this from happening, add empty system suspend/resume
callbacks for the SDIO bus type.

An analogous change had been made already by commit (e841a7c mmc:
sdio: Use empty system suspend/resume callbacks at the bus level),
but then it was reverted inadvertently by commit (d8e2ac3 mmc: sdio:
Fix PM_SLEEP related build warnings) that attempted to fix build
warnings introduced by commit e841a7c.
