Sry, but it still required some clarification :( - poweroff calls
device_shutdown() which, in turn, should not call .suspend(), so
how have you got both .shutdown() and .suspend() callbacks called during
poweroff? Am I missing smth?

Note. Suspend and shutdown uses different dev lists:
- shutdown uses kset
- suspend uses dpm_list
