It might work on OMAP4 for wakeup from suspend, but without properly
declaring the IRQ as a wakeup source, it will not abort suspend if the
RTC fires during the suspend process. To abort suspend, the IRQ must be
declared as a wakeup IRQ.

IRQ wakeup is a genirq feature that trickles into the irq_chip (in OMAP3
case, it's the twl4030 irq_chip.)

On OMAP3, as mentioned in the changelog, RTC wake has been working fine
without this because we default to CORE retention, so wakeup happens via
the IO ring. However, if you prevent retention during suspend, then
this IRQ will not wake the system.

In theory, that might be the better place (and that's where I put these
at first), but unfortunately, it doesn't work that way because the
twl6030-irq core enables/diables the parent IRQ wake feature using PM
notifiers (which was done to avoid potential lock recursion[1].)

During suspend, the notifier runs at suspend_prepare() time, which is
well before the driver's ->suspend() method is called. The result is
that the parents IRQ wakeup capabilies are never set.

mfd: Fix twl6030 lockdep recursion warning on setting wake IRQs

LOCKDEP explicitly sets all irq_desc locks as a single lock-class,
causing "possible recursive locking detected" when the TWL RTC
driver calls through enable_irq_wake to twl6030_irq_set_wake,
which recursively calls irq_set_irq_wake. Although the
irq_desc and lock are different, LOCKDEP treats these as
equivalent, presumably due to problems that can be incurred
when locking more than one irq_desc, so best to avoid this.

Suspend/resume actions implemented as PM notifiers to avoid
touch the TWL core for this.
