So, part of the issue here is that it's not clear if having the ifdefs
in the drivers is really something that makes sense.  It's not at all
clear that anyone is actually making active use of them on real systems
rather than just doing build coverage testing, it really feels like the
ifdefs that people are currently using are just being cargo culted

The reason it's come up for me is that dev_pm_ops changes things a bit
as you've got to decide how to handle the struct itself and there's no
clear decision on what the best way forward for that is (is it OK to
leave the struct if it's empty?) so you end up with the approach you
need to take varying between maintainers which is annoying.

Looks good to me:
