firmware: add sanity check on shutdown/suspend



The firmware API should not be used after we go to suspend
and after we reboot/halt. The suspend/resume case is a bit
complex, so this documents that so things are clearer.

We want to know about users of the API in incorrect places so
that their callers are corrected, so this also adds a warn
for those cases.

Considerations for suspend and resume
=====================================
During suspend and resume only the built-in firmware and the firmware cache
elements of the firmware API can be used. This is managed by fw_pm_notify().

/**
* fw_pm_notify - notifier for suspend/resume
* @notify_block: unused
* @mode: mode we are switching to
* @unused: unused
*
* Used to modify the firmware_class state as we move in between states.
* The firmware_class implements a firmware cache to enable device driver
* to fetch firmware upon resume before the root filesystem is ready. We
* disable API calls which do not use the built-in firmware or the firmware
* cache when we know these calls will not work.
*
* The inner logic behind all this is a bit complex so it is worth summarizing
* the kernel's own suspend/resume process with context and focus on how this
* can impact the firmware API.
*
* First a review on how we go to suspend::
*
* pm_suspend() --> enter_state() -->
* sys_sync()
* suspend_prepare() -->
* __pm_notifier_call_chain(PM_SUSPEND_PREPARE, ...);
* suspend_freeze_processes() -->
* freeze_processes() -->
* __usermodehelper_set_disable_depth(UMH_DISABLED);
* freeze all tasks ...
* freeze_kernel_threads()
* suspend_devices_and_enter() -->
* dpm_suspend_start() -->
* dpm_prepare()
* dpm_suspend()
* suspend_enter() -->
* platform_suspend_prepare()
* dpm_suspend_late()
* freeze_enter()
* syscore_suspend()
*
* When we resume we bail out of a loop from suspend_devices_and_enter() and
* unwind back out to the caller enter_state() where we were before as follows::
*
* enter_state() -->
* suspend_devices_and_enter() --> (bail from loop)
* dpm_resume_end() -->
* dpm_resume()
* dpm_complete()
* suspend_finish() -->
* suspend_thaw_processes() -->
* thaw_processes() -->
* __usermodehelper_set_disable_depth(UMH_FREEZING);
* thaw_workqueues();
* thaw all processes ...
* usermodehelper_enable();
* pm_notifier_call_chain(PM_POST_SUSPEND);
*
* fw_pm_notify() works through pm_notifier_call_chain().
