Subject: [PATCH] ACPI: PM: Clear wake-up device GPEs before enabling

This change clears GPE status for wake-up devices before enabling that
GPE. This is required to ensure that stale GPE status does
not result in pre-mature wake on enabling GPE for wake-up devices.

Without this change, here is the sequence of events that is causing
suspend aborts on recent chrome books:

1. System decides to enter sleep.
2. All devices in the system are put into low power mode.
3. This results in acpi_dev_suspend being called for each ACPI
4. If the device is wake capable, then acpi_dev_suspend calls
acpi_device_wakeup_enable to enable GPE for the device.
5. If GPE status is already set, enabling GPE for the wakeup device
results in generating a SCI which is handled by acpi_ev_detect_gpe
ultimately calling wakeup_source_activate that increments wakeup
events, and thus aborting the suspend attempt.
