But why would I care? If somebody suspends synchronously, then that's what
he wants.

Sure. But that sounds like a "Doctor, it hurts when I do this" situation.
Don't do that.

Make the USB host controller do its suspend asynchronously. We don't
suspend PCI bridges anyway, iirc (but I didn't actually check). And at
worst, we can make the PCI _bridges_ know about async suspends, and solve
it that way - without actually making any normal PCI drivers do it.
