Yes. With this appraoch in msm_gpio_irq_set_type(), we skip writing to
the GPIO's IRQ registers and it will not trigger an interrupt.

The TLMM summary line will be triggered for other GPIOs that are not
wakeup capable and therefore will not have a parallel PDC interrupt.

The PDC irqchip's registers are the same ones used over here as well to
configure the wakeup interrupt. So locking acrossing the pinctrl and
irqchip would be annoying, but doable. Would like to avoid it if
