Well, superfluous code shouldn't be included just because it doesn't hurt
or because others didn't know better either, or removed because of
someone else's feelings. ;-)

You can find the runtime resume before execution of the driver ->suspend
callback in drivers/pci/pci-driver.c:pci_pm_suspend():

        const struct dev_pm_ops *pm = dev->driver ? dev->driver->pm : NULL;
        if (pm->suspend) {
                error = pm->suspend(dev);

The device is prevented from auto-suspending because of a runtime PM ref
acquired beforehand in drivers/base/power/main.c:device_prepare().
