Unlike when 'removable' moved from USB to the driver core there isn't
a common definition for how the 'authorized' sysfs-attribute behaves
across buses. The only common piece is where this flag is stored in
the data structure, i.e. the 'authorized' sysfs interface is
purposefully left bus specific.

Ugh, yes.
