Following up on this myself -- see for example kernel/power/disk.c:
power_suspend(). It's a late intitcall so that, as it comments, "all
devices are discovered and initialized". However, your first followup
patch makes the USB HCI init async meaning that any USB storage device
might not be ready yet when it runs, no?

Rene.
