If there are two Macs at the ends of the daisy-chain with Thunderbolt
devices in-between, the other Mac may already have established tunnels
to some of the devices and therefore has occupied hop entries in the
devices' path config space. How do you ensure that you don't allocate
the same entries and overwrite the other Mac's hop entries, thereby
breaking its tunnels? Because you're only allocating the hop entries
locally here. Maybe there's some check in a later patch whether a
hop entry is already occupied, I'm not even halfway through this patch
bomb.

Thanks,

Lukas
