Subject: [PATCH] genirq: Respect IRQCHIP_SKIP_SET_WAKE in irq_chip_set_wake_parent()

This function returns an error if a child interrupt controller calls
irq_chip_set_wake_parent() but that parent interrupt controller has the
IRQCHIP_SKIP_SET_WAKE flag. Let's return 0 for success instead because
there isn't anything to do.

There's also the possibility that a parent indicates that we should skip
it, but the grandparent has an .irq_set_wake callback. Let's iterate
through the parent chain as long as the IRQCHIP_SKIP_SET_WAKE flag isn't
set so we can find the first parent that needs to handle the wake
configuration. This fixes a problem on my Qualcomm sdm845 device where
I'm trying to enable wake on an irq from the gpio controller that's a
child of the qcom pdc interrupt controller. The qcom pdc interrupt
controller has the IRQCHIP_SKIP_SET_WAKE flag set, and so does the
grandparent (ARM GIC), causing this function to return a failure because
the parent controller doesn't have the .irq_set_wake callback set.
