Thanks a lot for your time to review and test this patch. Here are some explanation why we started to look into the LPIT call flow and the outcome.

Problem statement:
--------------------
We are working on a chrome book using wilco ec. For this ec we have the _DSM implemented in the asl code for the s0ix entry/exit. We are seeing that while going to suspend in the suspend path system resumes and then goes back to suspend again. In mosys eventlog which shows the smbios info we see 2 entries for suspend entry/exit. Also when sdcard is inserted s0ix fails. 


Debug:
-----------
Initially I suspected that executing the DSM calls too early in suspend path is causing this. But as you reviewed the patch and mentioned that early call cannot really casue the issue. On further debug i found that In the ec polling from the ec transaction we check the guarding period before polling ec status. In the guarding period ec does busy/wait polling. Before entering the noirq stage always wait polling is done and noirq is called by PM after the LPIT dsm is executed. In the scenerio where ec is noisy and we try
to execute the LPIT dsm call ec does wait polling and calls wait_event_timeout till transaction is completed which results in wake up events. 
Here in our scenerio We are seeing an EC interrupt after setting the EC RAM offset that indicates that the EC should transition to S0ix mode and this is preventing the kernel from going into S0ix on the first try. In the kernel code for advance_transaction adding some extra condition/debug i saw that it is doing some extra loop based on what it reads from the ec ram.

Solution:
----------
As a workaround if we read back from the EC RAM while still in the _DSM handler it seems to prevent this problem. 
Also i tried the below patch where i made ec to enter the busy polling stage for the entire LPIT dsm transaction.

Please review and suggest if this kernel change can be an acceptable solution.

But as you correctly mentioned i found that the bug was not because this function was called early but it's happening because in our case ec seems to be bit noisy and that's why it's coming out of suspend too early. Something is going wrong in the ec polling function it seems in this case.

As I have just tested on one of my systems, moving the invocation of
the ACPI_LPS0_ENTRY _DSM to a later stage causes problems to happen
(spurious wakeups generated by the EC), so this generally doesn't
work.

I thus don't see a reason to change the code in the area at hand.
