GSM module. Under which circumstances is it toggling the GPIO/interrupt. Does 
this involve flow control? Is it specific to certain events in the modem, 
does it happen on everything in the AT command interpreter? Is it exclusive 
to call indication and sms or will it wakeup on any USC? (e.g. signal 
strength, network registration...)

I do not have a neod and this is a high level question: The wakeup on incoming 
call/SMS has some assumption. What are these assumptions? Is there anything 
we need to do with the modem (AT commands, flow control, vodoo, sacrificing 
goats) before going to suspend?

Any answer here?

From what I assume:
	- The modem will wakeup on anything from the AT command queue
	- This means we will need to disable some commands before going to sleep?
	- The modem is doing power management on its own
