Wakeup_count increments only when events_check_enabled is set. This
bool is set whenever we write current wakeup count to
/sys/power/wakeup_count from the user land. Also events_check_enabled
is cleared on every resume. My understanding is that, userland is
expected to write to this just before suspend. This way
pm_wakeup_event() when called from irqs will increment the
wakeup_count only if we are in system wide suspend resume cycle and
should give a fair approximation of how many times a device might have
caused a wake from S3/S0iX.  event_count on the other hand will
increment every time pm_wakeup_event() is called irrespective of
whether we are in a suspend/resume cycle.  For example when I try
doing something like this (, we see
the wakeup_count sysfs attribute for the particular device
incrementing every time there is a irq. If it is important to expose
event_count via sysfs attribute, should we create another attribute ?
Also we do expose each of these counters via

Please correct me if I am wrong or missing something. Also if there is
a better way to do this, please let me know.
