For the record, the "gadgetfs" interface was originally developed with
userspace USB TMC implementations in mind. I don't recall whether that
effort got out of the lab though.

The issue of suspend/resume explicitly came up. The scenario which
stuck in my mind was that when the TMC device was in USB-level suspend
state, the code on the peripheral would need to know about that so
it could re-enable manual controls. The host could no longer be
issuing commands. (Some of these folk were on the TMC design team.)

One of the customers didn't seem to like the notion of not being able
to turn off stress tests on a $US 20,000 engine ... and watching the
device(s) under test blow up. Accidental destruction == bad, it seems!

So I think you probably do misinterpret the spec. That issue was not
only discussed, but proper handling for it was identified.
