One small issue with the patch: There are two copies of
tegra_ehci_resume(). I assume the second should be renamed
tegra_ehci_runtime_resume().

I've tested the patch, and can unplug a USB device, wait 10 seconds,
then plug it back in, and everything works as expected.

However, I don't notice /sys/devices/.../power/runtime_status ever
saying anything other than active, and I can't cat autosuspend_delay_ms,
so I assume I'm still not triggering the path you want me to test. I do
have PM_RUNTIME turned on. Any ideas? Do I need some patch to the USB
core to enable this? I tested on next-20120413 plus a few local patches.
