Clean up the referring to the code in commit 52cdbdd49853 ("driver core:
correct device's shutdown order"). So later we can revert it safely.

You can't do this.

If you do it, that will break power management in some situations.

Could you shed light on it? I had a quick browsing of pm code, but it
is a big function, and I got lost in it.
If the above code causes failure, then does it imply that the seq in
devices_kset should be the same as dpm_list? But in device_shutdown(),
it only intersect with pm by
pm_runtime_get_noresume(dev) and pm_runtime_barrier(dev). How do these
function affect the seq in dpm_list? Need your help to see how to
handle this issue.

Thanks and regards,
Pingfan

Generally, yes it should.

They are not related to dpm_list directly.

However, if you shut down a supplier device before its consumer and that
involves power management, then the consumer shutdown may fail and lock up
the system

I asked you elsewhere to clearly describe the problem you are trying to
address.  Please do that in the first place.

Thanks,
Rafael

Ah, get your point. The patch in this series "[PATCHv3 2/4]
drivers/base: utilize device tree info to shutdown devices" still obey
the shutdown order "parent<-child" and "supplier<-consumer". It just
utilizes device-tree info to achieve this, since it turns out not easy
to maintain such order in devices_kset. As I described in the commit
log of [2/4], it needs two nested recursion, and should consider the
breakage of devices_kset's spinlock.

OK, I will reply your question in [0/4]
