Hi, Rafael

For this patch, I have a concern.

> From: Rafael J. Wysocki [mailto:r...@rjwysocki.net]

> Runtime GPEs have corresponding _Lxx/_Exx methods and are enabled

The problem is if the GPE is shared, how can we know decrement reference
once can sufficiently convert it into wakeup dispatcher owned GPE?

Thanks and best regards
