Yes, you can providing we extract a bit more information from the
machine drivers and/or userspace - we already do our power management
based on paths. The implementation I'd do here is to provide a facility
for marking some of the path endpoints as suspend insensitive then on
suspend leave those endpoints in their current state, force the other
endpoints off temporarily and re-run the standard power checks.

One thing I'll need to have a bit of a think about is if we need to
provide the ability to offer control to userspace for the suspend state
of path endpoints separately to their runtime state; I suspect the
answer is yes.
