Hello Dmitry.
Please find replies inline.

At this point syscoreops_resume has finished all its wakeup processing.

This will have no impact on the system and keypad ISR will not be

The interrupt line we use to detect wakeup processing is the keypress
interrupt which is disabled and will never cause the ISR invocation from
a device interrupt(i.e. the PIC).

In other words KBC isr gets invoked for 2 reasons
a) FIFO interrupt is generated, which will not happen as long as
scanning logic is disabled until kbc_resume executes.
b) The syscoreops_resume codepath calls into the ISR after finding KBC
was a wakesource. If this happens it will happen only when the kernel
resumes from its suspend code path.

With that being the case do you think the fix makes sense?
