ACPI: PM: s2idle: Avoid possible race related to the EC GPE
It is theoretically possible for the ACPI EC GPE to be set after the s2idle_ops->wake() called from s2idle_loop() has returned and before the subsequent pm_wakeup_pending() check is carried out. If that happens, the resulting wakeup event will cause the system to resume even though it may be a spurious one. To avoid that race, first make the ->wake() callback in struct platform_s2idle_ops return a bool value indicating whether or not to let the system resume and rearrange s2idle_loop() to use that value instad of the direct pm_wakeup_pending() call if ->wake() is present. Next, rework acpi_s2idle_wake() to process EC events and check pm_wakeup_pending() before re-arming the SCI for system wakeup to prevent it from triggering prematurely and add comments to that function to explain the rationale for the new code flow.
