hmmm, right, but as i replied at cros partner issue, this irq handle 
might not be called actually...

in my test on cros 4.4 kernel, it would break by irq_may_run(returning 
static bool irq_may_run(struct irq_desc *desc)
          * If the interrupt is an armed wakeup source, mark it pending
          * and suspended, disable it and notify the pm core about the
          * event.
         if (irq_pm_check_wakeup(desc))
                 return false;

bool irq_pm_check_wakeup(struct irq_desc *desc)
         if (irqd_is_wakeup_armed(&desc->irq_data)) {
                 irqd_clear(&desc->irq_data, IRQD_WAKEUP_ARMED);
                 desc->istate |= IRQS_SUSPENDED | IRQS_PENDING;
                 irq_disable(desc); <--- disabled here
                 return true;

and for irqd_is_wakeup_armed:

static bool suspend_device_irq(struct irq_desc *desc)
         if (irqd_is_wakeup_set(&desc->irq_data)) {
                 irqd_set(&desc->irq_data, IRQD_WAKEUP_ARMED); <-- set 
irqd_is_wakeup_armed here

void dpm_noirq_begin(void)

so unless we get an irq between device_wakeup_arm_wake_irqs and 
suspend_device_irq, the irq_pm_check_wakeup would not let us get to

actually this would not work...irq_get_trigger_type would return zero 
due to a bug which we have a patch for it already:

9908207 New          [tip:irq/urgent] genirq: Restore trigger settings 
in irq_modify_status()

BTW, using dev_name for the name of this wake irq seems not very 
convenient...maybe add a ":wake" suffix?
