Now, PM core supports asynchronous suspend/resume mode for devices
during system suspend/resume, and the power state transition of one
device may be completed in separate kernel thread. PM core ensures
all power state transition dependency between devices. This patch
enables designware i2c controllers to suspend/resume asynchronously.
This will take advantage of multicore and improve system suspend/resume
speed. After enabling all i2c devices, i2c adapters and i2c controllers
on ASUS T100TA tablet, the system suspend-to-idle time is reduced to
about 510ms from 750ms, and the system resume time is reduced to about
790ms from 900ms.
