I think we really want schedule_activate_all() there instead of
schedule_activate_check(), since connections can apply to zero to many
devices.  If you add that call there (and you'll have to copy & paste
the prototype for schedule_activate_all above that function) does that
do what you want?  Either that or look at current git where I've pushed
a patch doing this.
