Not nicely, I'm afraid.

One possible way is to use device_pm_move_after() to rearrange the devices in
the PM core's suspend list, but that will happen in the video device being
suspended before the new parent (and resumed after it) -- of course, the only
option is to move the ACPI video device after the new parent.

Thanks,
Rafael
