Well, if it should be done by the device/pm core then you want to
store that information in the device related data structure.
struct dev_pm_info might be the right place for it, but that's up to
So driver would set
dev->power.update_wakeirq_type = true;
dev->power.irq_type_normal = IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH;
dev->power.irq_type_sleep = IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_LOW;
And the dev/PM core can issue the calls on suspend/resume.
