It seems to me that we'll need a separate counter for the number of registered
drivers and do the switch if that number is equal to the number of drivers that
have passed false to this thing.

In which case we can simplify this slightly and introduce
pm_vt_swtich_not_required(void) and then the only drivers that need to bother
will be the ones known to not require the switch.

Otherwise it will be kind of error prone I'm afraid.

Thanks,
Rafael
