Hi Sven,

Hi Kornel, see below.

To address IO performance commit f9e5b33934ce

limited LPM negotiation to runtime suspend state.
The problem is that it only flips the switch in the runtime PM
resume/suspend logic.

Disable LPM negotiation in gl9763e_add_host.
This helps in two ways:
1. It was found that the LPM switch stays in the same position after
   warm reboot. Having it set in init helps with consistency.
2. Disabling LPM during the first runtime resume leaves us susceptible
   to the performance issue in the time window between boot and the
   first runtime suspend.

What happens if the bridge is not driving the system rootfs? Imagine
the case where
the bridge is used to drive an auxiliary eMMC, unused until a few hours
after boot. After this patch, the bridge may remain active (not-L1)
for the entire time,
although it's not being used...

That's already addressed by runtime PM. LPM negotiation will be
re-enabled duing the first runtime suspend. The default autosuspend
delay for all PCI MMC controllers is 50ms, so I think that's fine.
The only scenario where LPM will never be entered is if the user
explicitly disabled runtime PM for the controller. In that case however,
it's arguably better to have the LPM negotiation disabled for the sake of performance.

I suspect we want the following:
1. consistency - LPM register setting and runtime_pm state must agree
2. power-efficient initial state - bridge must come out of probe
and LPM must be enabled

I suspect the above will be fulfilled if we do

+ /* Bring to consistent runtime suspended state with LPM negotiation enabled */
+ gl9763e_set_low_power_negotiation(slot, false);
+ pm_runtime_set_suspended(dev);


I don't think this is something that we want do to. Apart from my
argument above there is one more thing to consider.
During runtime PM initialization in sdhci_pci_runtime_pm_allow
the usage counter is dropped using pm_runtime_put_noidle,
which doesn't trigger the machinery to suspend the device.
According to the comment that's because the mmc core logic will shortly
talk to the device, probably to initialize the eMMC card itself.
