Please don't ignore prior review comments: Either carry out what
was requested, or explain why the request can't be fulfilled. You
saying "This field will point to first device that is not owned by
pcistub" to Roger's request to make this a pointer to const is not a
valid reason to not do the adjustment; in fact your reply is entirely
unrelated to the request.

Purely cosmetical, but anyway: Why not just "found"? What else
could be (not) found here other than the device in question?

Despite the function needing to return int, this can be simplified to
"return !found_dev". I'd also like to note that the part of the
earlier comment related to this is sort of disconnected. How about

	/* Device not owned by pcistub, someone owns it. Abort the walk */
	if (!found_dev) {
		arg->dev = dev;
		return 1;
	}

	return 0;

And finally - I don't think the comment is entirely correct - the
device not being owned by pciback doesn't necessarily mean it's
owned by another driver. It could as well be unowned.

Is that really the case when you mean to do a slot reset? It was for
a reason that I had asked about a missing "else" in v1 review,
rather than questioning the conditional around the logic.

%#x

Yet then, thinking about what would be useful information should the
situation really arise, I'm not convinced printing a bare bus number
here is useful either. Especially for the case of multiple parallel
requests you want to make it possible to match each message to the
original request (guest start or whatever). Hence I think you want
something like

"%s on the same bus as %s is not owned by " DRV_NAME "\n"

While here the original device is perhaps not necessary to print,
the bare bus number doesn't carry enough information: You'll
want to prefix it by the segment number. Plus you'll want to use
canonical formatting (ssss:bb), so one can get matches when
suitably grep-ing the log. Perhaps bus->name is what you're
after.
