I don't see why you think it's dead code:

assign_adapter_store
==> vfio_ap_mdev_verify_queues_reserved_for_apid
==> vfio_ap_verify_queue_reserved
==> driver_for_each_device

The only way that the vfio_ap_verify_queue_reserved - the function that
calls driver_for_each_device - does not get called is if no bits have
yet been set in matrix_mdev->matrix.aqm.
