Hello Sudeep,

Thanks a lot for the feedback.

Yes, there are wakeup sources connected to this combiner. As Krzysztof
said some wakeup sources use a GPIO line as IRQ whose interrupt parent
is the combiner. As an example the Power gpio-key and cros_ec keyboard
for both Exynos5250 Snow and Exynos5420 Peach Pit/Pi.

Both drivers/input/keyboard/gpio_keysc and drivers/mfd/cros_ec.c do the
right thing though and call {enable,disable}_irq_wake() on the S2R path.

And in fact, the peripherals resume the system after a suspend but after
resume, interrupts are not triggered anymore.

I don't see how the below patch is going to work for the case I'm trying to
solve. If I understand correctly, the IRQCHIP_MASK_ON_SUSPEND flag is used
to force masking non wakeup interrupt in the suspend path (instead of just
disabling the interrupts on suspend and not masking at the hardware level)

But my problem is not about interrupts needed to be masked on suspend but
the opposite, that interrupts have to be unmasked on resume since the IP
loses its state so after a resume, interrupts are not triggered anymore.

So I also don't see how implementing irq_set_wake() as you suggested is
going to work. Maybe we need a IRQCHIP_UNMASK_ON_RESUME flag for this case?
