In that case, this irqchip should implement irq_set_wake and the driver
implementing power key should use enable_irq_wake in the suspend path.
Just saving all the mask/enable registers is not scalable solution and
also useless if it's just one or to interrupts that are very few IRQs
registered/actively being used.
