What is "should be disallowed" supposed to mean here? Isn't the
situation that, by hiding the device, which this patch is doing, we
actually disallow any further assignment?

If yes, this should rather be (something like):

"By hiding the device, we make sure it can't be assigned to any domain
any longer."

Other than this, the patch looks good to me, but I'll re-review it when
the new version comes out (with the other patches from the preliminary
series folded in), before saying Reviewed-by.
