How far "up the chain" are you going to go here?  What if the
thunderbolt device is on a PCI device that can be removed?  What if that
PCI device is on a PCI bus that can be removed?

Is a USB controller on a docking device really "removable"?

The goal here is to say if this device itself is removable in the sense
of "I can yank this out", and a roothub is not that type of device.

What problem are you trying to solve with this series?

thanks,

greg k-h
