Exactly, the older hardware revisions can't reliably do it.

Thanks, so something like this should do the job?

static int smsc95xx_manage_power(struct usbnet *dev, int on)
{
struct smsc95xx_priv *pdata = (struct smsc95xx_priv *)(dev->data[0]);

dev->intf->needs_remote_wakeup = on;

if (pdata->features & FEATURE_AUTOSUSPEND)
return 0;

/* this chip revision doesn't support autosuspend */
netdev_info(dev->net, "hardware doesn't support USB autosuspend\n");

if (on)
usb_autopm_get_interface_no_resume(dev->intf);
else
usb_autopm_put_interface_no_suspend(dev->intf);

return 0;
}
