Ah, you are correct. You only run into that case for the root hub,
correct? For everything else it's impossible?

...and I guess things would be different if inside the loop you
actually set "hcd" to point to the "hcd" of the child device. I guess
that's where my confusion keeps stemming from. "hcd" is the parent's
host controller which is not always the same as the child's host

It would have been keen if we could somehow know the child's host
controller and get a pointer to that, but we can't because the child
device hasn't been enumerated yet.

OK, I'm convinced. I'll mention it in your v23 but maybe I'll have a
slightly better chance of figuring this out if/when I look at this
again if we rename "hcd" to "parent_hcd".
