If they were ready, maybe. But those patches still need important work
(and review) and are not "fix" material but need to wait until the next
merge window.

Basically, the original patch should not have been submitted to mainline
until the runtime PM support was ready, so the correct short term fix is
to simply revert.

Also, to echo the question from Dima Zavin:

Why isn't this just a simple revert of the original patch?
