Huh? It's just as functional as any other xHCI platform host.
Perhaps I should have been more clear about "lower-power operating
modes": this refers to the runtime powergating of the controller's
SuperSpeed and host-controller logic and has nothing to do with USB
link/hub/device power management.

Yup, that's the platform I primarily used for testing this series.
