Do you know if there's any devices that break with this change, btw? Would be
super useful to know imho, and if so I might be alright with dropping it
depending on what the answer to the next paragraph is.

I will have to double check this since it's been a month, but basically - the
idea of having the topology references in the first place was to be the one
check for figuring out whether something's in a topology or not. I've been
thinking of maybe trying to replace it at some point, but I think we'd want to
do it all over the helpers instead of just in certain spots.

The other thing I noticed was that when I was rewriting this code, I noticed
it seemed a lot like we had misunderstood the issue that was causing leaks in
the first place. The BAD_PARAM we noticed indicates the payload we're trying
to remove on the other end doesn't exist anymore, meaning the branch device in
question got rid of any payloads it had active in response to the CSN. In
testing though I found that payloads would be automatically released in
situations where the last reachable port was marked as disconnected via a
previous CSN, but was still reachable otherwise, and not in any other
situation. This also seemed to match up with the excerpts in the DP spec that
I found, so I assumed it was probably correct.

Also, I think using the DDPS field instead of trying to traverse the topology
state (which might not have been fully updated yet in response to CSNs) might
be a slightly better idea since DDPS may end up being updated before the port
has been removed from our in-memory topology, which is kind of one of the
reasons I've been considering trying to come up with a better solution then
topology references someday (unfortunately it works 'good enough' for the most
part, so definitely not a priority). This is 100% a guess on my part though.
