This is specifically the EHCI controller on rk3288. Not sure why Wu

I'm told by Julius (CCed, who knows the USB stack infinitely better

On rk3288-pinky I have tested that without this patch the EHCI
controller flips out when a USB webcam is plugged into the port and is
power cycled across suspend/resume. With this patch the controller
properly unplugs / replugs the webcam.
