I see some driver also request dma channel in open() or hw_params().
how can they avoid the defer probe issue?
for example:
sound/arm/pxa2xx-pcm-lib.c
sound/soc/sprd/sprd-pcm-dma.c

It seems the best place for calling pm_runtime_get_sync is the
device_alloc_chan_resources, and calling pm_runtime_put_sync
in the .device_free_chan_resources

For the slave_sg mode, the .device_prep_slave_sg and
.device_issue_pending  will be called many times after
.device_alloc_chan_resources. so it is not good to call
pm_runtime_get_sync in .device_prep_slave_sg or
.device_issue_pending
