SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 02/10] spmi: Linux driver framework for SPMI
Couple of high-level comments on the in-kernel API.

pm_generic_suspend() checks both dev->driver and dev->driver->pm and returns
0 if either of them is NULL, so there should be no need to wrap the function.

Same here

The return type should be void. The function can't fail and nobody is going
to check the return value anyway.

Should be device_del(). device_unregister() will do both device_del() and
put_device(). But usually you'd want to do something in between like release
resources used by the controller.

For symmetry reasons it might make sense to call this spmi_device_free().

Should be a inline function for better type safety.

The type of the remove function should be found. The Linux device model
doesn't really allow for device removal to fail.

The framework seems to support dev_pm_ops just fine, there should be no need
for legacy suspend/resume callbacks.

Inline function here as well
