I have got a bit power on disabling EHCI, but it could happen just
because device itself went into the D3 state. C3 stats doesn't changes
on that. UHCI and other devices disabling also gave some bits.

Thanks. With disabling everything possible I was able to reach 4 hours
There is one question appeared, is there any way to deny driver
attachment for some specific device to left it is D3 state? For example
I don't need some specific USB hosts and PATA controller, but I can't
disable them with just not loading the driver. There is alike DF_ENABLED
flag I have found, but I haven't found any external way to reset it. :(
