Hmm, I tried on one machine with Atmel touch panel. I modified i2c-hid.c
a bit to print out when it is running suspend/resume hooks. Here is what
I got:

[ 7.506455] i2c_hid i2c-ATML1000:00: PM: i2c-hid runtime suspend

This is the initialization and after that the device is runtime

Now I put the machine to system sleep (using echo mem >

[ 26.988867] i2c_hid i2c-ATML1000:00: PM: i2c-hid runtime resume
[ 27.002957] i2c_hid i2c-ATML1000:00: PM: i2c-hid suspend

So the PM core will kick the device out of runtime suspend before it
suspends it again.

Pressing power button will resume the device:

[ 28.238934] i2c_hid i2c-ATML1000:00: PM: i2c-hid resume
[ 29.941579] i2c_hid i2c-ATML1000:00: PM: i2c-hid runtime suspend

and since the device is not being used, it will runtime suspend itself.

In other words, I'm not sure if this patch is needed. It would be good
if you could do similar testing using mainline kernel (if possible at
