Can,

Thanks for pointing out that.

Based on my understanding, that patch is redundent. maybe I
misundestood Linux shutdown sequence.

I checked the shutdown flow:

1. Set the "system_state" variable
2. Disable usermod to ensure that no user from userspace can start a
request
3. device_shutdown()
So, userspace thread can not start a request to trigger runtime
resume(pm_runtime_get_sync) after step 2.

also, no need to add that flag to checkup if shutdwon is running,
maybe it is better to check variable system_state:

if (system_state == SYSTEM_POWER_OFF || system_state == SYSTEM_HALT
|| system_state == SYSTEM_RESTART)
//shutdown start


I still hope Rafael or someone else can confirm that if
pm_runtime_get_sync() will really return ok in shutdown flow.


thanks,
Bean
