Hi Jason,

Thanks for taking a look. I'm concerned holding the sys/power/state
open would have unintentional side effects. Adding the
/sys/power/userspace_autosuspender seems more appropriate. We don't
have a use case for the refcounting, so would prefer the simpler
writing '0' / '1' to toggle semantics.
