Here's an example (just for kicks, not completely relevant to your
discussion): A USB keyboard key release. Unlike key presses, key
releases need not generate input events. If no processes are
monitoring the raw keyboard event queue then the release is not visible
to userspace at all, hence not visible before the wakeup_source needs
to be deactivated.
