Hi Andrew,

Understood. Thanks for your explanation.

Hi Jason,

I will take it a shot. Thanks for your sharing.

This is some of the configuration that I have on my system where the
pass-through is working correctly in x86-power-control:

I have one kernel patch that selects the "pass-through" pin
configuration on startup:;!!HSntlCg!Ep_IWFI6dHqTAFsDwLYoJ0JYl3PjsE2hcEJQFIkNt1nDgHL9PvJEAWMmDWtE4az1$ .

In x86-power-control, I have the POWER_BUTTON GPIO mapped to GPIOP2, and
I'm able to claim and monitor that GPIO without affecting the
pass-through status.

I have POWER_OUT mapped to GPIOP3 which cannot be held in
x86-power-control as it disables the pass-through when claimed.  So, it
is always released after the power-control action is completed.
