Wrong. The interrupts are disabled and reenabled by the core code and
not by some extra suspend/resume callbacks in your driver. The core
checks those marked as IRQ_WAKE, the wake callback to the irq chip is
only there if you need to set up some hardware register in order to
make the wake functionality work. So again, you don't need local state
as the core tracks the state for you.
