To support runtime PM for hisi SAS driver (the dirver is in directory
drivers/scsi/hisi_sas), we add device link between scsi_device->sdev_gendev
(consumer device) and hisi_hba->dev(supplier device) with flags
After runtime suspended consumers and supplier, unload the dirver which
cause a hung. We find that it calls function device_release_driver_internal()
to release supplier device hisi_hba->dev, as the device link is busy, 
it sets the device link as DL_STATE_SUPPLIER_UNBIND, and then call function
device_release_driver_internal() to release consumer device
scsi_device->sdev_gendev). Then It will try to call pm_runtime_get_sync()
to resume consumer device, as consumer-supplier relation exists, it will try
to resume supplier first, but as the link state is already set as 
DL_STATE_SUPPLIER_UNBIND, so it skips resuming supplier and only resume 
consumer which cause a hung (it sends IOs to resume scsi_device while 
SAS controller is suspended). Simple flow is as follows:

device_release_driver_internal -> (supplier device)
    if device_links_busy ->
	    device_links_unbind_consumers ->
		device_release_driver_internal (consumer device)
    pm_runtime_get_sync -> (consumer device)
	__rpm_callback ->
	    rpm_get_suppliers ->
		if link->state == DL_STATE_SUPPLIER_UNBIND -> skip the action of resuming the supplier

It should guarantee correct suspend/resume ordering between a supplier
device and its consumer devices (resume the supplier device before resuming
consumer devices, and suspend consumer devices before suspending supplier
device) for runtime PM, but it seems the check in rpm_get_supplier() breaks 
the rule, so remove it.
