If you do:

	echo auto >/sys/devices/.../power/control

(where the ... gets filled in with the path to the EHCI controller),
then the controller should automatically get powered down whenever the
bus does.  The bus will get powered down whenever no USB devices are
plugged in (or the only attached USB devices are things like hubs that
will themselves get suspended) after a 2-second delay.

This is intended to be equivalent to enabling the
power_down_on_bus_suspend flag in the tegra_ehci_platform_data 
structure.  That
is, tegra_ehci_probe checks that flag and sets the PM control to auto
if the flag is enabled.
