Ok, going through the details of documentation under
/sys/devices/.../power/wakeup files of
power/device.txt, i think following should be the change if we want to
control the wakeup control
through user sapce:
During initialization of device, we need to tell that device is wakeup
capable and hence we need to
call the: device_wakeup_init() and device_set_wakeup_capable(dev, true).

Then it exposes the required sysfs to userspace to select the wakeup
enable or not i.e. power/wakeup
to be written as enabled or disabled.

Based on user selection, the function device_may_wakeup() will return
true/false based on
power/wakeup enabled/disabled.
So before entering into the suspend, we need to check this function and
call enable_irq_wakeup() to
have the wakeup enabled actually in the soc. In resume we need to call
disable_irq_wake() again.

If this is correct approach then I can push the another patch.
