Fair enough!

The untested patch below should give you hooks to do what you need to do.

Add the irq_suspend/resume callbacks and set the IRQCHIP_GENERIC_SUSPEND
flag on your xen irqchip, so it actually gets invoked.

I have to make that opt in right now because the callbacks are used in the
generic irqchip implementation already. We can revisit that when you can
confirm that this is actually solving the problem.
