    Well, perhaps, let's not get ahead of ourselves here :)

    The issue I am referring to above still has to do with the vmbus core.

    The goal is to have the vmbus work like all other busses in the kernel.
    You register a hv_driver with some probe and disconnect callbacks, and
    the vmbus calls into the drivers when it needs to.

    You are almost there, using the struct device pointers directly, but a
    few more steps remain.

    I'll look into the details after your remaining cleanups, I don't want
    to get in the way of them.
