SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/3] firewire-sbp2: Ignore SBP-2 targets on the local node

In the long run, we might want to support target and initiator set up to
reside on the same node and talking to each other via loopback, if
somebody really needs it and if it can be done with reasonably little
effort. Until then, the patch is fine with me WRT what it accomplishes.

But I do wonder: Shouldn't this be implemented by returning from the
driver probe method with an error? If so, which errno should be
returned? (Cc'ing driver core maintainer for this question.)
