Ok so in summary, irq is left unmasked in pdc during deep cpu idle and
it keeps waking up the CPU because it isn't masked at the PDC after the
first time it interrupts? Is this a power problem? Because from a
correctness standpoint we don't really care. It woke up the CPU because
it happened, and the GIC can decide to ignore it or not by masking it at
the GIC. I thought that the PDC wouldn't wake up the CPU if we masked
the irq at the GIC level. Is that not true?

We can't rely on drivers to do that.

It's not a concern about the hardware reset state of these registers at
boot. I'm worried that the bootloaders or previous OS will configure pdc
pins to wake us up. It's better to just force it to something sane, i.e.
everything disabled in the PDC, at driver probe time so that nothing can
be wrong.
