SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3] Input: axp20x-pek - Remove unique wakeup event handling

Hmm, I'm not sure this is a good idea, let me give you some background
info on this:

This hook was handled because on X86 systems/laptops when waking
them up typically the power-button does not send a KEY_POWER press event
when the system was woken up through the power-button.

So normal (e.g. Debian, Fedora) userspace does not expect this event
and will directly go to sleep again because that is the default behavior
on a KEY_POWER event.

On x86 axp20x-pek is only used for the power-button on Bay Trail devices
with a AXP288 PMIC. On Cherry Trail devices with an AXP288 PMIC the
power-button is also connected directly to a GPIO on the SoC and that
is used (also see the axp20x_pek_should_register_input function).

So after writing this patch, when doing hw-enablement for the power-button
on the Cherry Trail devices I learned that the gpio_keys driver does
send userspace a KEY_POWER event when woken up with the power-button.

I wrote a patch for gpio-keys to not do this, as that is what normal
Linux userspace expects, but that was nacked, because under e.g.
Android the KEY_POWER event is actually desirable / necessary to avoid
Android immediately re-suspending the system again. Since my "fix" to
the gpio-keys devices was nacked I have instead wroked around this in
userspace, but *only* for the GNOME3 desktop environment, by teaching
GNOME3 to ignore KEY_POWER events for the first couple of seconds after
a resume.

So your suggested change, which will cause KEY_POWER to be send on
Bay Trail devices after a wake-up by the power button, should be
fine for recent GNOME3 versions, but for other desktop environments
this may cause a regression where they respond to the new KEY_POWER
event by immediately going back to sleep again.

As for this not working with the i2c bus, it does on X86 because
the PMIC is also directly accessed by the power-management HW of
the SoC and to make this work the i2c-controller is never suspended
and its irq is marked IRQF_NO_SUSPEND. But this is X86 special


I'm personally fine with remove the magic I added to suppress
the KEY_POWER press reporting as in hindsight given the gpio-keys
story I should have never added it. But I'm worried about this
causing regressions for some Bay Trail users. OTOH making this
change would be good for Android X86 users.

Another IMHO better fix would be to drop the __maybe_unused and
instead wrap both the axp20x_pek_resume_noirq function and the
init of the .resume_noirq struct member with:

#if defined X86 && defined CONFIG_PM_SLEEP

This keeps the current behavior on Bay Trail machines, while
I assume it should also fix the issues this was causing for
your setup.
