That's really an OMAP thing, I guess. Pad wakeup sits in the PRCM (IIRC)
inside and always on power domain. EHCI sits in another power domain
which be turned off. When it's turned off (power gated and clock gated)
the EHCI block has no means to wakeup whatsoever. That's when pad wakeup
comes into play. It is generated when PRCM sees a change in the actual
pad of the die. To check who should 'own' the wakeup, it checks the
muxing settings to verify whose pad is that.
