There's one more thing to consider here. Going forward we'll want to avoid
touching runtime-suspended devices during system suspend. Then, system wakeup
devices will need to mark their IRQs for system wakeup at the runtime suspend
time and I'm not sure if that's the right time for calling enable_irq_wake().
