Hmm just guessing.. It's maybe because drivers can enable and disable the wakeup capability at any point for example like driver/net drivers do based on WOL etc? > There's two approaches I see: > > 1) Do a similar check for device_set_wakeup_enable() and skip > adding the wakeup class until dpm_sysfs_add(). > > 2) Find each case where this happens and only call wakeup APIs > on the device after the device is added. > > I guess it's better to let devices have wakeup modified on them before > they're registered with the device core? I think we should at least initially handle case #1 above as multiple places otherwise seem to break. Then maybe we could add a warning to help fix all the #2 cases if needed? Regards, Tony
