No, we don't support randomly toggling power for devices without their
cooperation - it's not generally going to end well. The reason it's
difficult to do this is that it's a bad idea. Perhaps this is something
that could be implemented generically for USB as it's a hotpluggable bus
but I'm not convinced.
