I think as the periph common code is in drivers/, so should the fallback

How about using submodules within drivers/periph_common/Makefile? E.g.,

- rename drivers/periph_common/pm.c to pm_fallback.c
- add
    # exclude submodule sources from *.c wildcard source selection
    SRC := $(pm_fallback.c,$(wildcard *.c))
  to drivers/periph_common/Makefile

- add "PSEUDOMODULES += periph_common_%" to makefiles/pseudomodules.mk

That would compile pm_fallback *only* if periph_common_pm_fallback is
selected. (with #5757, all periph files will become submodules...)

kinetis_common/periph/pm.c can just go (and be replaced with a
dependency on the cortem_common code).
