There might be a racing issue between UFS shutdown and runtime resume
flow described as below,

Thread #1: In UFS shutdown flow with ufshcd_shutdown() is running.
Thread #2: In UFS runtime-resume flow which invokes
           ufshcd_runtime_resume() because UFS was in runtime-suspended
           state while an I/O request was issued.

In this scenario, racing may happen and possibly lead to system hang
if Thread #2 accesses UFS host's register map after host's resource,
like power or clocks, are disabled by Thread #1.

To avoid this racing, use PM public function pm_runtime_get_sync() in
shutdown flow instead of internal function ufshcd_runtime_resume() for
consolidated control of RPM status.

One concern is that pm_runtime_get_sync() may be better paired with
pm_runtime_put_sync(), however shutdown could be one-way path thus the
pairing is not required.
