The GPIO irqchip would be in hierarchy with the wakeup-parent
irqchip and no device specific functions would be called directly.
We could achieve this with compatible strings to the irqchip.

The PDC/MPM do not know about the association.

Yes, wakeup is the only use of this interrupt parent. It is powered by
an always-on rail and therefore can detect some interrupts that are
routed to it even when the GIC is powered off. Though Tegra's
implementation of the irqchip is a bit different from QCOM, the idea is
generally the same. It would be helpful, if we could make this a
generic enough binding.
