WoL is a very common acronym especially in the networking space

But the overall this section does not make sense

The description says that it indicates platform power on method but what
is NULL power on? There are flags for power loss detection.

Does the RTC mean that the processor real time clock woke up the uC? Or
that the internal RTC woke up the controller?

And for the
what are those values?

It seems like some ABI's are documented well with formats and others are
just described without a format.

For instance

/sys/bus/serial/devices/.../iei_wt61p803_puzzle_core/version the format
of this version is not described but
/sys/bus/serial/devices/.../iei_wt61p803_puzzle_core/build_info is.
