I agree that this is a bug, and that this patch is one way to solve
things; however, I'm not convinced it's necessarily the right way.

Should we be instead rolling back and undoing the new controller
creation if adding the device fails?

Should the successful addition of a controller save domain state at that
point, even though that means two saves instead of one if this succeeds
here?

But, if others agree with this approach, then ACK to the code.
