In addition to that we need the interrupt handler of the driver that requested
the irq to be set up for system wakeup to be invoked after suspend_device_irqs()
in case there are interrupts that should abort the suspend transition or we
can lose a wakeup event.  So whatever interface we decide to use it has to
affect suspend/resume_device_irqs() pretty much in the same way as the
IRQF_NO_SUSPEND flag.
