What ain't obvious for the comment is that "belong to" actually means
composition and not association. In other words, there there is no
pointer/indirection involved, a pointer that would tell us what matrix
does belong to what matrix_mdev, but rather the matrix is just a part
of the matrix_mdev object.

I don't like 'false positive' either, and whether the apm/aqm is
newly updated or not is also redundant and confusing in my opinion. When
we check because of inuse there is not updated whatever. IMHO the old
message was better than this one.

Just my opinion, if you two agree, that this is the way to go, I'm fine
with that.

Halil
