Subject[PATCH] genirq: Clarify that irq wake state is orthogonal to enable/disable
There's some confusion around if an irq that's disabled with
disable_irq() can still wake the system from sleep states such as
"suspend to RAM". Let's clarify this in the kernel documentation for
irq_set_irq_wake() so that it's clear that an irq can be disabled and
still wake the system if it has been marked for wakeup.
