If pm_runtime_no_callbacks() is used, runtime PM sysfs attributes
won't be created.
Then how to disable ZPODD feature in userspace?

Currently, I use "control" file of scsi device to enable/disable
ZPODD, for example
echo auto > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/ata0/host1/target1:0:0/1:0:0:0/power/control
echo on > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/ata0/host1/target1:0:0/1:0:0:0/power/control

Does the ATA port callback also responsible to resume its child?

For example,
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/ata0/host1/target1:0:0/1:0:0:0/

ata0 is resumed.

Then who will be responsible to resume host1, target1:0:0 and 1:0:0:0?

Or do you mean that we don't need to resume these devices at all?
host1 and target1:0:0 are logical devices, but I think 1:0:0:0 is not.
