Subject: [PATCH] PM / sleep / irq: Do not suspend wakeup interrupts

From: Rafael J. Wysocki <>

If an IRQ has been configured for wakeup via enable_irq_wake(), the
driver who has done that must be prepared for receiving interrupts
after suspend_device_irqs() has returned, so there is no need to
"suspend" such IRQs.  Moreover, if drivers using enable_irq_wake()
actually want to receive interrupts after suspend_device_irqs() has
returned, they need to add IRQF_NO_SUSPEND to the IRQ flags while
requesting the IRQs, which shouldn't be necessary (it also goes a bit
too far, as IRQF_NO_SUSPEND causes the IRQ to be ignored by
suspend_device_irqs() all the time regardless of whether or not it
has been configured for signaling wakeup).

For the above reasons, make __disable_irq() ignore IRQ descriptors
with IRQD_WAKEUP_STATE set when its suspend argument is true which
effectively causes them to behave like IRQs with IRQF_NO_SUSPEND

This also allows IRQs configured for wakeup via enable_irq_wake()
to work as wakeup interrupts for the "freeze" (suspend-to-idle)
sleep mode automatically just like for any other sleep states.
