Ah, right. Mine (6 uhci and 2 ehci root hubs) are all already in
pwr=SAVE mode, except for the so far unused webcam:
ugen3.2: <product 0x480c Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd.> at usbus3, cfg=0
md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON (100mA)
Setting that to power_save saved about 150mW, or 30mA at 5V. Only a few
extra minutes (~2%) of battery life, but every little bit helps, thanks.
Not that that's really anything to do with the $subject ..
By default our USB stack only enables power save for USB HUBs, because
it assumes that non-USB HUB device, might be broken with regard to
suspend. Your findings make sense.
