Right.

So in the patch I posted I described why NO_SUSPEND is useful, I still
have to hear a solid reason for why we also need enable_irq_wake()? What
does it do that cannot be achieved with NO_SUSPEND?

I realize its dynamic, but that's crap, at device registration time it
pretty much already knows if its a wakeup source or not, right?
