Why not? If a device is configured as wakeup source, then it activity
should wake up the system, unless you disable it.

No, please implement hibernation support properly, as notifier + flag is
a hack. In this particular case you do not want to have your
hv_kbd_resume() to be called in place of pm_ops->thaw() as that is what
reenables the keyboard vmbus channel and causes the undesired wakeup
events. Your vmbus implementation should allow individual drivers to
control the set of PM operations that they wish to use, instead of
forcing everything through suspend/resume.

Thanks.
