Well the CPCAP PMIC interrupt is connected to a GPIO edge interrupt
on the SoC in the Motorola v3.8 based kernel tree. But what the CPCAP
PMIC interrupt handler does in the Motorola kernel is keep handling
the CPCAP internal interrupts (and also keep reading the SoC GPIO
line status!) until the GPIO line changes status. So yeah it's a
property of the CPCAP PMIC hardware.

Changing the GPIO interrupt to level makes no difference here. It's
not clear why they had marked the CPCAP PMIC to SoC GPIO interrupt
as edge though in the Motorola kernel. My guess is that some PMIC
to SoC wake-up events are edge interrupts. So we have it set up as
edge interrupt in the mainline kernel too.
