Well, no.  That would be just as bad as not having the stubs in the 
first place.

Not only is it impossible to tell user-level drivers about suspend, 
etc. events, it's also not possible to tell them that they have been 
unbound!  So I wanted to be conservative and keep the kernel's current 
behavior: The suspend/resume/reset happens and the user-level driver is 
blissfully igorant of it.
