Sounds like a reasonable approach to me.

That works too. Not sure which way is better. If we go this option,
I'd suggest to rename lock_device_offline() since it could be misleading
that the lock is only used for offline, i.e. excluding online.
lock_device_hotplug() might be less confusing although we distinguish
online/offline and hotplug operations.
