I would like to understand whether there is a situation where an unmap is
called in atomic context without an enabled master?

Let's say we have the case where all the unmap calls in atomic context happen
only from the master's context (in which case the device link should
take care of
the pm state of smmu), and the only unmap that happen in non-atomic context
is the one with master disabled. In such a case doesn it make sense to
the atomic/non-atomic context and add pm_runtime_get_sync()/put_sync() only
for the non-atomic context since that would be the one with master disabled.
