There is more to this than just the padconf.
Using in-band interrupt instead of the out of band one requires
Supporting a feature called "Asynchronous interrupts in 4Bit mode"
Which is part of SDIO 3.0 spec:

Take a look at page 41 at the bottom part of the table.
Wilink8 supports this feature but AFAIK this support is still not part of the 
mmc/sdio core in the Linux kernel.
If we want wilink8 to trigger a host wakeup using the in-band interrupt instead 
Of the wlan_irq pin we would need to enable/use this feature.

I did use it internally in the past and was able to patch the Ubuntu kernel 
(3.5.0 at that time) to use wilink8 in a standard SD Card slot of an Ubuntu Laptop 
while removing the use of wlan_irq pin completely.
However this was an experimental patch set written by a third party 
that was not up-steamtable at that time.
I do have this patch set somewhere...

It is similar to the following patch which is not  upstream as well for some reason:
It is not the only patch needed, there are a couple of additional patches needed 
for fully using it from driver.
I did check latest Linux-next and don't see this support there. Not sure why.

Best Regards,
