I think this comment was meant for the *next* patch
(https://lkml.org/lkml/2021/9/29/1023) and perhaps we can discuss this
there? Let me copy your comment there and respond.

*This* patch does not throw away any information as currently the root
hubs are always and unconditionally marked as "unknown". This patch
aims to provide information where we can, for roothubs only.

Thanks,

Rajat


This looks like a worsening, not an improvement to me.
