The purpose is to let scsi layer driver(sd, sr, etc.) use the same pm
api(scsi_autopm_put_device) to put the device to runtime suspended
When the device is ready to be suspended, if it does not make use of
autosuspend, call pm_runtime_put_sync for it; if it makes use of
autosuspend, call the autosuspend runtime pm apis for it.

If you see the above reason not good, I'll prepare an updated version
to create a new api to cover the autosuspend case, something like:
void scsi_autopm_put_device_autosuspend(struct scsi_device *sdev)
Does this look right?
