You're not talking about the same thing I believe.

When Daniel says "small atomic drivers", he talks about the relatively
small DRM drivers for SoC display controllers, such as the ones you can
find in ARM SoCs.

When you say "small driver", you're thinking about drivers for I2C or
SPI connected displays.
