Re: [PATCH v2] USB: serial: cp210x: Fix GPIO in autosuspend

Hi Oliver,

USB suspend does not turn off power. Your concerns about the situations you list
are valid, but my patch is for another problem. Not for what happens
when power is lost, but because the user couldn't use the GPIO lines even if
power was on and continous, due to the kernel automatically putting the device into
suspend and then all usb messages failed in this case.
