USB mass storage is more awkward, but otherwise yes. Note that this 
isn't inherently about suspending the device - they may go into a power 
savig state, but it's not required that they be fully powered down. The 
issue is more about letting the *bus* power down. How much we save will 
depend on the specific bus layout on a given machine, and also whether 
we can successfully autosuspend all of the drivers.
