> With legacy PM, drivers themselves are responsible for handling the device's
> power states. And they do this with the help of PCI helper functions like
> pci_enable/disable_device(), pci_set/restore_state(), pci_set_powr_state(), etc.

> All patches are compile-tested only.

Series applied to net-next, thanks.
