When we also are I2C slave, we need to disable runtime PM because the
address detection mechanism needs to be active all the time. However, we
can reenable runtime PM once the slave instance was unregistered. So,
use pm_runtime_get_sync/put to achieve this, since it has proper
refcounting. pm_runtime_allow/forbid is like a global knob controllable
from userspace which is unsuitable here.

Change since v1 is the use of get/put instead of enable/disable. Thanks to Alan
and Geert for the pointers!
