I thought the ban was on using the stuff , not selling components to Huwaii

who gives a shit if i / you / them sells components to people who make machines that might contain spyware?

I think it meant blocking them from American "intellectual property", and hardware that they can then clone/bootleg. Or at least slow them down (tooling up to make their own replacements for American components would still take them some time). Or such is my impression.
