They will work, as noted with manual metering, and some histogram checking.

But Pentax-A lenses are much easier to use on the Pentax DSLRs. That's because you get full metering with them. This is reflected in the much higher price that the Pentax-A 35/2.0 commands on the used market compared to the Pentax-M version. (The Pentax-A 50/1.7 is very common and cheap.)

You may find that you need a third-party focusing screen to be able to manually focus accurately on any DSLR (not just Pentax).

Also, remember all these lenses get a 1.5X crop factor on Pentax DSLR.
