mei: me: allow runtime pm for platform with D0i3
>From the pci power documentation: "The driver itself should not call pm_runtime_allow(), though. Instead, it should let user space or some platform-specific code do that (user space can do it via sysfs as stated above)..." However, the S0ix residency cannot be reached without MEI device getting into low power state. Hence, for mei devices that support D0i3, it's better to make runtime power management mandatory and not rely on the system integration such as udev rules. This policy cannot be applied globally as some older platforms were found to have broken power management. Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> v4.13+ Cc: Rafael J.
