Hmm.. But we are inconsistent in what we provide as input into the PDC
From the PDC driver perspective, it gets a hwirq number either when
driver requests a wakeup interrupt specified in DT as
or from GPIO, which translates the GPIO to the PDC hwirq and requests

I would agree.

MPM :)

BTW, I am discussing with the internal folks here on if we need to mask
TLMM when the wakeup-parent is MPM. If we don't have to, we should be
able to follow the same model as we done in this patch and don't even
have to check the compatible or use the approach suggested by Stephen.
