sorry for being a little bit unresponsive on this matter. I just moved
across the Atlantic (again :-P ) and am in a rough setup for a few
days (hopefully not weeks). I don't currently have any Synaptics RMI4
over SMBus device with me, but Lyude (AKA Chandler) does have access
to the ones we have in Westford.

In addition to the patches I published in this series (the ones Andrew
has), our latest tree
contains the SMBus support and some attempts to fix suspend/resume
with SMBus touchpads.

The problem we have with suspend/resume on SMBus is that the device is
both seen as a PS/2 device (which we unbind) and the SMBus one.
Problem is, during resume, the serial port is reset, which disable the
SMBus part.

Our solution currently consists in disabling the PM resume function
from the rmi_driver code, and export it through an internal API. Once
the low level driver receive the resume callback (either from the PM
code or the serial driver which just busted our init through its own
reset), this low level driver calls the rmi_driver resume function
which does all the RMI4 resume handling.

I think this should be needed for i2c-hid devices too given that most
of them also enumerates as PS/2.

I always refrained to send this resume fixes because we were not able
to test the rmi4_i2c driver as it doesn't register itself with the PM

These are hopefully the only changes that needs to be done on the
rmi4_core part for having rmi_smbus working.
