I think that's still only a software reset. :\

USB hubs can optionally allow software to control the power supply of
ports individually, and this could of course be used to power cycle
any bus powered USB device.

As far as I know, no hub driver exposes an API to do this however -
but I'd love to be wrong about this, so please tell me if anyone knows!
