Hmm so if we have a separate always on irq controller for the wake-up events
and we want to keep it always on and exclude it from any suspend related
things.. Why would we not use IRQF_NO_SUSPEND on it?

Above you say "The IRQF_NO_SUSPEND flag is used to identify the interrupts
that should be left enabled so as to allow them to work as expected during
the suspend-resume cycle..." and that's exactly what we want to do here :)

For the dedicated wake-up interrupts, we have separate registers to enable
and disable them. The $subject irq is the shared interrupt that allows
making use of the pin specific wake-up interrupts, and for those yes we
are using enable_irq_wake().

Because in the $subject case we just want to always keep it on and
never suspend it. It's unrelated to the wakeup APIs at least for the
omap related SoCs.

Regards,

Tony
