I only have a fairly narrow understanding of this stuff, but if you have
nested interrupts, you would surely need the parent to be registered as a
wakeup interrupt, else the device wouldn't wake and the nested interrupt
would be ineffective until something else woke the device.

Very few files mention both '.irq_set_wake' and 'irq_set_nested'.

twl6040-irq.c has code to set irq_wake_enable on the parent if any nested
irqs have had irq_set_wake calls.
tps6586x.c has something similar, but much simpler.
arizona-irq.c and rc5t583-irq.c do the same as tps6586x.c

So I think that any nested interrupts which might want to be wakeup
interrupts already deal with the issue, and I don't introduce a new problem
here.

Thanks,
