I don't really understand. After the previous patches, why would a
properly configured ITS return an error in its_save_device_tables?

If that's not possible, are we not trying to support partially migrating
half-way broken state, and is that something we care about?

What if the two functions return two different error codes, is the
binary OR of these error codes going to tell userspace anything
meaningful?
