I guess it depends on how you read it. I always considered it separate
because none (?) of the bus implementation assert this in comments to
XXX_get_drvdata().

No, the driver does not create a generic device, it actually creates a
platform device, or i2c client, or spi, or something else. The fact that
suspend and resume routines have generic device as their argument has
more to do with the language limitation rather than reflection of true
type of the objects we are dealing with.
