I think I already give a strong reason for my decision. Let say that my
controller only has space for 4 devices and one of them is offline during
pre_assign_dyn_addr() and hence it fails. When device tries to do the HJ
I won't be able to do the enumeration because there is no space left.
Anyway, you are right and I need to add this to commit message.

BTW, It is not clear to me why should we keep non addressed devices
allocated when we have i3c_dev_boardinfo list with ->of_node information
and what is the problem with allocate/free/re-allocate dance?

Best regards,
Vitor Soares
