Talking only about the EHCI bits here ... it looks pretty generic
except for the clock management, which can't be.

The tricky bits here will be system suspend/resume support, with
the host controller able to trigger remote wakeup. Clearly you
don't support system suspend/resume yet.

A slightly less tricky bit would be suspending the root hub.
Sometimes the hardware needs help there; other times it can
automatically gate the various clocks and save power.

If you split out patches for each of the drivers, I can ack
each of those seaprately. And then hope to see patches which
add power management support before too long.
