Sure, I can use a nested loop.

vmbus_process_offer() looks for the if_instance and if_type matches
to determine if this is a subchannel vs primary channel. The loop 
terminates at different condition from hv_set_devnum().
So I didn't re-use the existing loop.

And this kind of search happens only during channel offering, and
doesn't impact performance much.
