Yeah, the disconnected hack is kind of gross, IMO. I hate to introduce churn in
the patch series given that it was initially introduced with the client cap.

There are also cases where we might want to make writeback unavailable, such as
when content protection is enabled. In those cases, it's conceivable that we
might want to use disconnected as a signal to u/s. I suppose we could also just
fail the check, so most of this is just academic.
