Assuming that an "atom feed" is a feed, and an "atom entry" is an 
alternative format representation of the same document:

   <link rel=feed href=feed.xml>
   <link rel=alternate href=entry.xml>

...does what you are asking for according to HTML5, as does:

   <link rel=alternate href=feed.xml type=application/atom+xml>
   <link rel=alternate href=entry.xml>

If an "entry" is something more special (e.g. if it is actually an edit 
interface), then register a new rel="" value for it, e.g. rel=edit:

   <link rel=feed href=feed.xml>
   <link rel=edit href=entry.xml>
