Yeah, that looks very similar to what I picked up from the older
patches, going to read up on that after my vacation.

Just in general why are you interested in the "distance" of the devices?

And BTW: At least for writes that Peer 2 Peer transactions between
different root complexes work is actually more common than the other way
around.

So I'm a bit torn between using a blacklist or a whitelist. A whitelist
is certainly more conservative approach, but that could get a bit long.

Thanks,
Christian.
