The consumer device stays active just fine with PM runtime
calls. So yes, the problem is keeping a clock controller forced
active for the period of consumer device reset. Other than
that typically autoidle can be just kept enabled.

Below is a clarified suggested example usage if we wanted to
use PM runtime on a clock controller device from a consumer
device reset driver:

error = pm_runtime_get_dev()
...
cdev = clk_get_device(clk);
...
error = pm_runtime_get(cdev);
...
/* Do the consumer device reset here */
...
pm_runtime_put(cdev);
pm_runtime_put(dev);

Regards,

Tony
