Merge tag 'pm+acpi-4.6-rc3' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rafael/linux-pm
Pull power management and ACPI fixes from Rafael Wysocki: "Fixes for some issues discovered after recent changes and for some that have just been found lately regardless of those changes (intel_pstate, intel_idle, PM core, mailbox/pcc, turbostat) plus support for some new CPU models (intel_idle, Intel RAPL driver, turbostat) and documentation updates (intel_pstate, PM core). Specifics: - intel_pstate fixes for two issues exposed by the recent switch over from using timers and for one issue introduced during the 4.4 cycle plus new comments describing data structures used by the driver (Rafael Wysocki, Srinivas Pandruvada). - intel_idle fixes related to CPU offline/online (Richard Cochran). - intel_idle support (new CPU IDs and state definitions mostly) for Skylake-X and Kabylake processors (Len Brown). - PCC mailbox driver fix for an out-of-bounds memory access that may cause the kernel to panic() (Shanker Donthineni). - New (missing) CPU ID for one apparently overlooked Haswell model in the Intel RAPL power capping driver (Srinivas Pandruvada). - Fix for the PM core's wakeup IRQs framework to make it work after wakeup settings reconfiguration from sysfs (Grygorii Strashko). - Runtime PM documentation update to make it describe what needs to be done during device removal more precisely (Krzysztof Kozlowski). - Stale comment removal cleanup in the cpufreq-dt driver (Viresh Kumar). - turbostat utility fixes and support for Broxton, Skylake-X and Kabylake processors (Len Brown)" * tag 'pm+acpi-4.6-rc3' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rafael/linux-pm: (28 commits) PM / wakeirq: fix wakeirq setting after wakup re-configuration from sysfs tools/power turbostat: work around RC6 counter wrap tools/power turbostat: initial KBL support tools/power turbostat: initial SKX support tools/power turbostat: decode BXT TSC frequency via CPUID tools/power turbostat: initial BXT support tools/power turbostat: print IRTL MSRs tools/power turbostat: SGX state should print only if --debug intel_idle: Add KBL support intel_idle: Add SKX support intel_idle: Clean up all registered devices on exit. intel_idle: Propagate hot plug errors. intel_idle: Don't overreact to a cpuidle registration failure. intel_idle: Setup the timer broadcast only on successful driver load. intel_idle: Avoid a double free of the per-CPU data. intel_idle: Fix dangling registration on error path. intel_idle: Fix deallocation order on the driver exit path. intel_idle: Remove redundant initialization calls. intel_idle: Fix a helper function's return value. intel_idle: remove useless return from void function. ...

removal of their drivers.
+Drivers in ->remove() callback should undo the runtime PM changes done
+in ->probe(). Usually this means calling pm_runtime_disable(),
+pm_runtime_dont_use_autosuspend() etc.
The user space can effectively disallow the driver of the device to power manage
it at run time by changing the value of its /sys/devices/.../power/control
attribute to "on", which causes pm_runtime_forbid() to be called. In principle,
