Strike! Thanks Andy, it works. One minor glitch is that after a wakeup the 
programmed threshold (not the wakeup_threshold, the usual threshold) seems to 
be reset but the sysfs still shows the same value, so we should reprogram 
that (preferred) or reflect the reset in the sysfs (2nd best).

Thanks again, this opens up for some nice tricks!
