It does enable wake-up at the PCI level if so configured, so in principle it
should handle it. However, for WoL to work there are some things that the
drivers is reponsible for, so I guess it will be analogous for WoW.

Anyway, the PCI-specific mechanics is there.

All of this is unnecessary, the PCI PM core should take care of this just
fine. In case it doesn't, it has to be fixed.

Generally, yes, but that's not a priority work for me. I've just happened to
have the patch ready, so here it goes.

They should be converted, though, to be able to support PCI run-time PM.
