Ok, I did a bit more tests here with a Keyspan adapter on my laptop
(well known driver for not having the suspend/resume routines).

The good thing is with the patch, the machine goes to sleep. However,
the device is not disconnected/reconnected. What happens it that the bus
gets suspended anyway and the driver stays around (possibly getting
errors on some URBs).

This is fine, but not optimal, since that means most of the time that
the device will not work on resume unless disconnected/reconnected. (For
keyspan, it seems that the HW does support the suspend state, thus it's
just a matter of closing/re-opening the port, I suppose it would be easy
enough to fix the driver).

So this patch is good for it doesn't prevent sleep anymore, but it also
doesn't do what we decided it should do. I think David is right that we
should be able to disconnect the device without actually removing the
device & driver from sysfs, just let that happen at resume time.

Ben.
