It seems to me that there would be an expectation that PC system firmware and TBT controller
firmware is configured to behave like Apple systems to use this SW connection manager
instead of the ICM in AR/TR FW.
Is there an intent to eventually offer a way to "side-step" the TBT ICM and try to use this instead
without firmware support?

I don't see a problem for fwupd in this area.

This is a bit unfortunate. Is this because of IOMMU limitations in working
with devices down the chain?
