I don't know the answer to either question without testing. All I am
saying is that currently the default for CONFIG_PM is "off" and you are
changing it to be "on" and there may not have been any testing done of
that in some situations. We don't know where it was explicitly
turned off any more since we shrank our defconfig files (which was done
automatically) ... since it is off by default, it doesn't need to be
mentioned in a defconfig unless it needs to be turned on.
