I don't think it's very complicated, really. Looking at examples of other
drivers (e.g. imx334) doing exactly the same helps as you don't need to
check for individual functions.

The complexity of the power management in this driver is mostly because of
evolutionary development done over time, it's an old driver.

Good question. CONFIG_PM is something you can disable (for a reason I can't
think of though). Why should a driver depend on it when it could perfectly
work without it as well?

Although this might not amount to a practical drawback. :-)
