Okay. Thank you for this reference. This can be definitely helpful.
But a quick look may be feel, this is slightly different.
Anyways, I will have a deeper look.

You can think that the version I am using right now is almost 4.9 itself.
Upgrading again to higher kernel version is again difficult, also
customer does not want it.
BTW, I am not talking about runtime suspend/resume.
I know it works normally.

I just need some approach and pointers.
Like someone said rightly, I may need to re-implement bind() function
again in resume path.
I already tried doing hdmi_power_on/off and with that I could invoke
hdmi_setup() function, but the system hang after that.

Another approach I tried is, installing hdmi {dw-hdmi.ko,
dw_hdmi-imx.ko} as a module, just after the resume.
With this also system hangs during installation of dw_hdmi-imx.ko at
below location:

|--> component_bind_all(...)
     |-> component_bind(ipu)
         |-> ipu_crtc_init(..)
             |-> ipu_plane_irq(..)
             | ----> << __HANGS HERE__ >>
             |-> devm_request_irq(ipu_irq_handler)

So, ipu_drm_bind() never returns, and hangs.
So, my question is, which approach is better (as a first trial):
1) Installing hdmi as a module, after resume ?
2) Or, implementing the suspend/resume itself ?
