Ahh, it seems we have discussed this... I keep forgetting things...

Have you already tested this? I never tried changing mode via sysfs, but
by quickly reviewing the code, I am wondering how it works. the core
only calls ops->set_mode() but nothing else. To really switch the mode,
the driver has to talk to the root hub, and manipulate the SESSION
bit...
