You need to power-on the USB controller in order to change the wakeup
setting.

That's right. Suppose the user wants the system to stay asleep when a
slave attaches. But when you suspended the xHCI controller, it was set
to wake up when a new slave attaches. So when a slave is attached, the
controller will wake up the system. That's bad.

If the wakeup setting needs to be changed when the system suspend
begins, then you have to power-on the controller to make that change.

Given a choice between using a little power or behaving incorrectly,
you should choose to use the power.
