Not a driver, but the core part of resume from suspend-to-idle and it
needs to call it for the EC GPE specifically to avoid missing events
that will be discarded on some platforms if the EC is not poked at
within specific time since when the GPE status changed.

IOW, the use case is in patch [2/2]. :-)

I do realize, however, that you may not want this upstream as it is
strictly Linux-specific and will probably stay this way forever
(suspend-to-idle is a Linux concept and I'm not aware of any OSes
doing it).
