This is the weirdness of OMAP hwmod framework :).

The OMAP hwmod framework tries to manage the module clocks by itself and needs
a runtime_resume to enable the relevant clocks.

hwmod framework will be deprecated in the near future and this is the place where
we need to handle the resources.

But since we are not yet there, I can get rid of this wrapper driver for now
and add the necessary pm_runtime calls in the ahci_platform driver.
