I'm not sure there is a different problem to solve here.  It's unsafe to
call the "shut everything down" function, which is what usb_stop() is,
after having shut everything down.  We may be able to stop calling
usb_stop() as any sort of shutdown should already have happened via
driver model, which is what we see now.
