Did you actually read, what I wrote?

The core does in case of MASK_ON_SUSPEND

for_each_irq() {
if (!irq->wakeupsource)

That's identical to what you are doing. You just do it differently by
saving the active wakeup sources in your own data structure and then
write that info to the mask register, which leaves only the wakeup
sources unmasked.
