Here you are looking at the old code. After that there are several of 
changes related to suspend/resume functions.

This is the link to the code with changes. Latest version of those 
functions.

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/drivers/usb/dwc2/hcd.c#n4489

Your changes are sitting on that latest version of code. Not the old 
version of it.

I think you did this tests on the old version of the code

I have tested the flow myself with the mainline Kernel on 
"torvalds/master" and not HPRT0_SUSP nor PCGCTL_STOPPCLK are not being set.

So here you need to review those things again.
