Hardware can be inserted and removed while we're in a suspend state; and
there's nothing that we can do about it until we resume. Is it fair to
say, then, that having started suspend, we could reasonably ignore any
device insertion and removal, and handle it on resume? Presumably we
need to scan for hardware changes on resume.
