I think this patch will break things.  Previously, we had:

  cx23885_pci_driver.suspend == NULL
  cx23885_pci_driver.resume == NULL
  cx23885_pci_driver.driver.pm == NULL

pci_pm_suspend() looks like:

  if (pci_has_legacy_pm_support(pci_dev))
    return pci_legacy_suspend(dev, PMSG_SUSPEND);

  if (!pm) {
    pci_pm_default_suspend(pci_dev);
    return 0;
  }

pci_has_legacy_pm_support() was false since drv->suspend and
drv->resume are both NULL, so we'd take the pci_pm_default_suspend()
path.  After this patch, driver.pm would no longer be NULL, so we'd
take a different path that is clearly not equivalent.

I think you should do this:

  - 	/* TODO */
  -	.suspend  = NULL,
  -	.resume   = NULL,

and leave .driver.pm NULL by not mentioning it at all.  That should be
identical at the object code level since those are the defaults
anyway.

That almost looks like useless churn, but the point of this patch is
to remove use of PCI legacy PM (pci_driver.suspend and .resume) so we
can completely remove that infrastructure from the PCI core, including
the .suspend and .resume members of struct pci_driver, so we really do
need to do it.
