Sounds like we can either add reverse mapping from the configfs
structure to all referencing sessions and rip out the references or go
through an indirection and simple mark the configfs parts as gone in
the indirection.  I see no reason to tear down and recreate sessions
just to fulfill the configfs requirement.

But I might be speaking out of my arse here, given my (lack of)
understanding of the general architecture.
