Well spotted ;). This was a protectionist change added at the request
of a user of the driver. I believe that it is superfluous and I suppose
that belief leaked through in the language of my comment.

In actuality, the GPIO APIs don't make provision for clearing GPIO
interrupts before enabling them so this masking is really only a
deferral of a spurious interrupt if one is triggered by changes in the
hardware programming.

I can strike this from the upstream submission and save a couple lines
of source code (after IRQCHIP_MASK_ON_SUSPEND goes away) if you prefer.
