    The patches to support it (still) haven't been merged.

    Yeah; under ACPI, PCI does not act like it does everywhere else.
    Nor does wakeup in general.

    After sending patches to fix that for a couple years now, I'm
    well past being tired of doing that. I suggest it's overdue for
    the ACPI team to get this part of their act together.

    That is: either start merging those patches, possibly with updates
    to handle broken hardware better; or rewrite them; ... or just say
    explicitly the message I've been receiving: "Linux ACPI will never
    support wakeup the way the rest of Linux can and does". (And the
    "why" should be something reasonable.)
