Yes.  The PM core was changed (I don't remember exactly when) so that 
writes to power/state wouldn't always be accepted for all devices.  You 
can undo that change by commenting out the "if" and "return" statements 
at the start of drivers/base/power/sysfs.c:state_store().  But it's 
easier just to use the PCI-suspend patch I posted before.

That's right.  Most UHCI controllers can't do it, although some of the 
controllers made by VIA can.
