I would much rather see this fixed in the driver itself.
For the time being, a "dummy" suspend routine could look like this:
static int foo_suspend(struct usb_interface *intf, pm_message_t msg)
Getting reprobed during resume would be more difficult; it would need help
Maybe UEAGLE can do something a little more sensible...
