Subject: Re: Check if usb device is suspended

I want to resume the usb device on some event, so i want to check if
it is suspended. I think by above method i can check if the device is
already suspended, but may be i will miss to resume the device if it
is suspending. Is there any way through which i can check if device is
suspending?
