In this context the "subsystem" actually has a struct device associated
with it so does appear in the device flow.

Worst case is about a second for both resume and suspend which means two
seconds total but it's very hardware dependant.

The latency budget for suspend and resume are both zero in an ideal
world, users want to be able to suspend as much as possible which means
they'd like it to take no perceptible time at the human level. Some
hardware is at the point where that's getting realistic but the folks on
older hardware still want to get as close to that as they can.
