Understand your concerns.

I think there is only one mode, either ULP1 or ULP0, in a runtime system.
The ULP1 sources are used to wake up the ULP1, and the ULP0 sources wake up the ULP0,
they don't mutually effect each other.
If system is in the ULP1 mode, and there are no ULP1 sources defined, the system will fail to
be waken up, even though there are ULP0 sources defined. The ULP0 source can't wake up the ULP1.

In the ULP1 mode, all clocks are disabled. It can get lower consumption and
quicker wake up (the processor restarts in less than 10us) than ULP0 mode.
The number of wake up sources is limited as well. It is very different from ULP0's
Hi Nicolas, what is your opinions?
