I also mentioned that am not touching the wakeup function pointer. The
reason an alternate is needed because wakeup function pointer back-end
comes in between. And the existing SW control flag isn't intended
completely for the purpose what we wanted to use for uart. And I didn't
expected the wakeup crap will come in between an implementation of just
slave idle bits.

The main need for uart wakeup is the io_ring() trigger and that needs
to happen via generic pin control API. SYSC wakeup bit isn't something
needs to be toggled so that can be decoupled. So again the idea is
to make SYSC handling transparent to UART drivers and let driver toggle
the io_ring() based on ->set_wake() as it is done today.
