It really should be split up differently. The topics of interest are:

idle detection for SCSI devices,

autosuspend for SCSI targets and its relation to suspend
for SCSI devices,

passing suspend & resume notifications to the transport class,

adding a USB transport class so that usb-storage can respond
to those notifications,

modifying other transport classes as needed so that the LLDs
can power-down links or host adapters.

I think that covers it. Oliver may have some additional suggestions.
