[PATCH 5.3 100/197] ALSA: hda - Force runtime PM on Nvidia HDMI codecs

commit 94989e318b2f11e217e86bee058088064fa9a2e9 upstream.

PrzemysÅaw Kopa reports that since commit b516ea586d71 ("PCI: Enable
NVIDIA HDA controllers"), the discrete GPU Nvidia GeForce GT 540M on his
2011 Samsung laptop refuses to runtime suspend, resulting in a power
regression and excessive heat.

Rivera Valdez witnesses the same issue with a GeForce GT 525M (GF108M)
of the same era, as does another Arch Linux user named "R0AR" with a
more recent GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (GP107M).

The commit exposes the discrete GPU's HDA controller and all four codecs
on the controller do not set the CLKSTOP and EPSS bits in the Supported
Power States Response. They also do not set the PS-ClkStopOk bit in the
Get Power State Response. hda_codec_runtime_suspend() therefore does
not call snd_hdac_codec_link_down(), which prevents each codec and the
PCI device from runtime suspending.

The same issue is present on some AMD discrete GPUs and we addressed it
by forcing runtime PM despite the bits not being set, see commit
57cb54e53bdd ("ALSA: hda - Force to link down at runtime suspend on

Do the same for Nvidia HDMI codecs.
