I think "parent devices suspend after their children" is not related directly
with using async or not;
In the original code, even without asyncing, the suspend/resume has the waiting
action, but there no waiting action for suspend_noirq and other phases.

If you think the parent waiting for children is necessary for suspend_noirq/suspend_late
/resume_early/resume_noirq, I can cook other series patches.

But we can separate them with current asyncing series patches. Agree?
