The title is quite misleading, exynos_drm has already pm_runtime support :)
Could you explain more why do you want to change it, what are requirements of
atomic pm? What is wrong with the current one?

If I remember correctly one of arguments for replacing pm callbacks in
components by one centralized callback in exynos_drm_drv was to avoid issues
with non-deterministic order of calling components suspend callback.
Are there any recent changes in PM, DRM which invalidates the reason above?

On the other side your patchset adds implicit dependency on PM_SLEEP config
option, it should be avoided or at least it should be explicit.
