No, we need to tell users if we're deferring since there's no guarantee
that the device blocking registration is ever going to be loaded - we
need to let the user know why the device isn't appearing so that they
can diagnose problems. Yes, it's noisy and ideally we'd have something
more efficient than deferred probe but there we are.
