Bearing in mind that I know very little about this, I think
serial_core wants to have the device wakeup capable in any case, but
not actually enable wakeup on the device until requested. It seems
that drivers rely on that behaviour too.

device_init_wakeup(tty_dev, 0) calls device_set_wakeup_capable(dev,
false) which I think is not what we want.
