Sorry about that.

Placing a WARN_ON there seems to suggest drivers should not return
-EAGAIN, so I think I'll just add back those dropped code to
sdev_runtime_suspend as you have suggested like this:

static int sdev_runtime_suspend(struct device *dev)
const struct dev_pm_ops *pm = dev->driver ? dev->driver->pm : NULL;
int (*cb)(struct device *) = pm ? pm->runtime_suspend : NULL;
struct scsi_device *sdev = to_scsi_device(dev);
int ret;

if (sdev->request_queue->dev)
return sdev_blk_runtime_suspend(sdev, cb);

ret = scsi_dev_type_suspend(dev, cb);
if (ret == -EAGAIN)
pm_schedule_suspend(dev, jiffies_to_msecs(
return ret;

Does this look OK?

Thanks, the trip was great.
