There are couple of drivers specific to arm64, once they are converted
we can get rid of arm_pm_restart entirely here.

I thought you wanted to keep exporting arm_pm_restart. That logically implies
that you want to have the ability to write new drivers which use it, which
in turn implies that converting existing drivers would not make much sense.

Am I missing something ?
