Are you really describing the GIC behaviour here? It sounds like you are
describing the behaviour of the Wakeup Unit.

The SPI that goes to the GIC is the *output* of the WKPU. However the
registers you mention above all control edge detection at the input to
the WKPU. If so, the kernel would need an WKPU irqchip driver in order
to manage the trigger mode registers above (and to clear them).


PS I can't find any sign of a WKPU driver in the mainline kernel and
AFAICT this would make wake up sources unusable. What kernel have
you been running your experiments on?
