I mean something real - something like

- if you run on a non-PC with two USB buses behind non-PCI controllers.

- device xyz.

I mean in general - something where you actually have hard data that some
device really needs anythign more than my one-liner, and really _needs_
some complex infrastructure.

Not "let's imagine a case like xyz".

But that's my _point_. That's the whole point of the one-liner patch. Read
the comment above that one-liner.

My whole point was that by doing the whole "wait for children" in generic
code, you also made devices - such as PCI bridges - have to wait for
children, even though they don't need to, and don't want to.

So I suggested an admittedly ugly hack to take care of it - rather than
some complex infrastructure.
