It hangs because it has already been powered off, right?

I can see that this fixes the issue with the platform driver (as the
platform bus core doesn't power on the device automatically as opposed
to other buses, like PCI). However, I'm thinking that can we do better

Instead of powering the device on again, can't we leave it in low power
state? Recently added 'dev->power.direct_complete' may be used to
achieve that, I think.
