According to my comment on the other thread, this stands true in case
the child is managed by runtime PM as well.
Otherwise this looks good to me.

How about adding an additional patch on top taking into account the
ignore_children flag and folding that into the series, kind of as you
My point is, we might as well take the opportunity to fix this right
away, don't you think?
