Why?

Really.

Again, stop making it harder than it needs to be.

Why do you make up these crazy schemes that are way more complex than they
need to be?

Here's an untested one-liner that has a 10-line comment.

I agree it is ugly, but it is ugly exactly because the generic device
layer _forces_ us to wait for children even when we don't want to. With
this, that unnecessary wait is now done asynchronously.

I'd rather do it some other way - perhaps having an explicit flag that
says "don't wait for children because I'm not going to suspend myself
until 'suspend_late' _anyway_". But at least this is _simple_.
