I don't think that when removing a port the expectation is that
all associated controllers remain intact (although they can, which
was why we did not remove them), so I think its fine to change that
if it causes issues.

Can we handle this in the core instead (also so we'd be consistent
across transports)?

How about this untested patch instead?
