I didn't know that and I missed. Thank you for pointing out my fault.
I agree that removing updating hcd->state which is protected by vhci
lock is not correct.

But I still have not fully understood the relationship between
vhci_bus_suspend() and vhci_hub_status() yet. I will look at it in
more detail. Again, thank you for reviewing my patch.
