So, here we're just setting it to whatever the driver told us to use
which seems about right.

And here we're parenting the class device with the real device we were
passed which again seems obvious.

What does this mean and how is it related to anything you've said above?
I'm sorry but I really can't make head nor tail of what you're trying to
say here, there's just lots and lots of statements here but I'm
struggling to understand how they are related to each other.

> Am I missing anything here in understanding?

I certainly am. Please go back to square one: what's the problem you
are seeing here? Then go forward and step by step relate it to the code
change.
