There is a parallel line that is directed from the PIN directly to the
PDC in addition to the TLMM. This line does not go through the TLMM.

I got that from the cover letter.

PDC is always-on and when it detects any interrupt, will wakeup the GIC
and then replay the interrupt line to the GIC. This interrupt line is
not the summary line, but a separate line from GPIO/PIN to the PDC.

Since the TLMM was also in low power mode, when the GIC was powered
down, the TLMM never sees the IRQ and therefore will not send the
summary line to GIC. The wakeup path is GPIO -> PDC -> GIC.

Sure. But once woken up (GIC *and* TLMM), the gpio line (which I
assume is level) is still high at the TLMM input. So why isn't it
registering that state once it has been woken up?

I can understand that it would be missing an edge. But that doesn't
hold for level signalling.

Sure, yes. Sorry for not registering your point in my response.
Once woken up we should see the level interrupt in TLMM.

I think that's where it is probably confusing. The TLMM will not see the
interrupt because it was in low power mode.

See above. I can buy that for edge, but not level.
