If the other Mac has enumerated the device (set the upstream port,
route, depth) then the other Mac cannot access the device. You get an
error (we deal with that in the later patch in the series when we
identify XDomain connections). The Hop ID allocation is only relevant in
a single domain. Crossing one needs to have protocol such as we have in
case of ThunderboltIP to negotiate Hop IDs used in the link between two
domains.
