Despite other *_get()/*_put() functions, where usage count is
incremented only if not errors, the pm_runtime_get_sync() has
a different behavior, incrementing the counter *even* on
errors.

That's an error prone behavior, as people often forget to
decrement the usage counter.

However, the hantro driver depends on this behavior, as it
will decrement the usage_count unconditionally at the m2m
job finish time, which makes sense.

So, intead of using the pm_runtime_resume_and_get() that
would decrement the counter on error, keep the current
API, but add a documentation explaining the rationale for
keep using pm_runtime_get_sync().
