I have to agree with Andrew here, and if the answer is that you cannot 
model this PMIC as an interrupt controller, cannot the config_init() 
callback of the driver acknowledge then disable the interrupts as it 
normally would if you were cold booting the system? This would also 
allow you to properly account for the PHY having woken-up the system.
