Right, I am not advocating adding GPIO control right away, I was simply
arguing why I believe we should separate wakeup handling from normal
communication handling.

Another option is to have a device property "atmel,wakeup-type" or
something, in case there are more Atmel variants needing this.

Rob, any preferences here?
