Yes, I see that now.

Good point. The continuous interrupts I was seeing is because
the wakeup was actually being carried out, followed by the
thrashing between suspend and wakeup.
If your interpretation is true (which I suspect it is)
then global suspend could still be supported with only
a couple of extra interrupts after each suspend.

Moving the wait out of the ISR and doing the wakeup
only for RD on non-OC ports are winners.
I can't comment on the 1 second grace period. Was that
in response to this investigation, or have you actually
seen false RD indications due to noise?
There is also the more trivial matter of removing the
unnecessary setting of the FGR bit on wakeup.
I'll check that the global RD interrupt does not
keep repeating after a false RD by an OC port.
So I suggest you build a patch that does all of
the above (with the grace period at your discretion).
Then we can both test it, and you can submit it
for actual inclusion.
