Yeah, I'm really not happy with NO_SUSPEND + enable_irq_wake().

I really want that combo to BUG/WARN -- esp. since there's so much cargo
culted crap out there.

We should make robust interfaces, not randomly toggle flags until it
mostly works by accident rather than by design -- which is what this
feels like.

And while I appreciate the watchdog use-case; I think the easiest
solution for now is to simply disable the wathdog over suspend until
we've come up with something that makes sense.

As it is, you need to 'suspend' the watchdog at some point anyhow; you
don't want that thing to wake you from whatever suspend state you're in.
