This looks like a duplication of the is_suspended flag in struct dev_pm_info.
Any reason why you can't use that? If so, it would be good to document the
reason in the commit message.

Oh, that is a very good point and that one only gets set on system suspend
and not on resume suspend, working around the problems with the i2c-designware

Just to make it clear: you mean runtime suspend, not resume suspend, or?

Yes I mean runtime-suspend, sorry.

The power.is_suspended flag is about system-wide suspend, however.

Right, which is why it is good for us to use, when runtime-suspend the
i2c-adapter drivers transfer function will do a runtime_pm_get and all
is well, we want to check for someone trying to do i2c-transfers on
the adapter while it is system-suspended, since then the runtime_pm_get
is a no-op and things fail.

So for this use case it is a good thing that power.is_suspended flag is about
system-wide suspend (which is what I was trying to say in the first place).
