I really think this is totally and utterly broken. Both from an
implementation standpoint _and_ from a pure conceptual one.

Why isn't the suspend/resume async stuff just done like the init async
stuff?

We don't need that crazy per-device flag for initialization, neither do we
need drivers "enabling" any async code at all. They just do some things
asynchronously, and then at the end of init time we wait for all those
async events.

So why does suspend/resume need to do crazy sh*t instead?

It all looks terminally broken: you force async suspend for all PCI
drivers, even when it makes no sense. Rather than let the drivers that
already know how to do things like disk spinup asynchronously just do it
that way.

The "timing" routines are also just crazy. What is the excuse for
dpm_show_time() taking both start and stop times, since there is never any
valid situation when it shouldn't have that do_gettimgofday(&stop) just
before it? IOW - the whole end-time thing should be _inside_
dpm_show_time, rather than being done by the caller. No?

In other words - I'm not pulling this crazy thing. You'd better explain
why it was done that way, when we already have done the same things better
before in different ways.
