Subject[PATCH 5.0 051/117] ACPICA: Clear status of GPEs before enabling them
From: Furquan Shaikh <>

commit c8b1917c8987a6fa3695d479b4d60fbbbc3e537b upstream.

Commit 18996f2db918 ("ACPICA: Events: Stop unconditionally clearing
ACPI IRQs during suspend/resume") was added to stop clearing event
status bits unconditionally in the system-wide suspend and resume
paths. This was done because of an issue with a laptop lid appaering
to be closed even when it was used to wake up the system from suspend
(see, which
happened because event status bits were cleared unconditionally on
system resume. Though this change fixed the issue in the resume path,
it introduced regressions in a few suspend paths.

First regression was reported and fixed in the S5 entry path by commit
fa85015c0d95 ("ACPICA: Clear status of all events when entering S5").
Next regression was reported and fixed for all legacy sleep paths by
commit f317c7dc12b7 ("ACPICA: Clear status of all events when entering
sleep states"). However, there still is a suspend-to-idle regression,
since suspend-to-idle does not follow the legacy sleep paths.

In the suspend-to-idle case, wakeup is enabled as part of device
suspend. If the status bits of wakeup GPEs are set when they are
enabled, it causes a premature system wakeup to occur.

To address that problem, partially revert commit 18996f2db918 to
restore GPE status bits clearing before the GPE is enabled in
