I suppose it would if the configuration doesn't enable PM. In practice I
don't think this happens very often. I'm also not aware of any of the IP
blocks in Tegra being reused on other SoCs, so I think the risk of this
happening isn't very high.

That said, I think adding the dependency on PM is good documentation and
would prevent the cases that you're describing from happening, so I'll
see to it that we get it added where needed.

I think all drivers currently support running without PM, but the code
to do it is cumbersome and highly repetitive. I think we can add the PM
dependency at the same time that we remove the !PM boilerplate.
