I was wondering: would it make sense to simplify from
list_for_each_entry_safe() to list_for_each_entry() in this loop?

But it is important to know _if_ the bus was destroyed, right?
IOW, doesn't your comment from commit 5d3c4c79384a still hold?

(...) But, it doesn't tell the caller that it obliterated the
bus and invoked the destructor for all devices that were on the bus. In
the coalesced MMIO case, this can result in a deleted list entry
dereference due to attempting to continue iterating on coalesced_zones
after future entries (in the walk) have been deleted.
