I am unsure, whether gpio_keys driver is interested in the way, how wake
happens. I guess that is interested only in the fact, that wake

Handling platform specific edge/level wake setup would only complicate
the code. (In fact, even the PXA270 platform code does not exist yet -
arch/arm/mach-pxa/mfp-pxa2xx.c:__mfp_config_gpio() is not capable to
configure Power Manager Keyboard Wake-Up Enable Register (PKWR).)

I talked to Vojtěch Pavlík and he told that 1 is correct: Follow
include/linux/interrupt.h. Setting edge/level wake mode should be done
in the platform file. The driver could use just irq_set_wake() and don't
care about details. And irq_set_wake() should do something useful even
for PKWR capable GPIO.

Well, keypad_set_wake() seems to be possibly broken for GPIO 38. Imagine
a device, that has a small keypad, but GPIO 38 has a different purpose
that requires an edge triggered wakeup (PWER). I think that
keypad_set_wake() reprograms it to PKWR.

The problem affects gpio_keys: It is a driver implementing "one key per
gpio". It now handles On/Off and lid switches on Zaurus. Lid switches
are on "normal" GPIOs, On/Off switch is wired to PKWR capable GPIO.

SPITZ_GPIO_KEY_INT happens if AC adapter is connected or key is pressed.
Surprisingly, the key press logic is part of NAND flash controller CPLD.
SPITZ_GPIO_KEY_INT==0 - it makes possible to wake Zaurus even from deep
sleep by any key press. It would be impossible only with PKWR.

I guess that this and implementation of keypad_set_wake() is a reason,
why most devices suspend and resume correctly even if the irq_set_wake()
refuses to configure wake and the warning is only visible symptom.
