    No, according to PICMG 2.1 R2.0, suprise removal is "non-compliant".

    I've not implemented it yet, but I'm pretty sure I can detect surprise
    extractions in my cPCI driver. The only thing holding me back at the
    moment is that there's no clear way to report this status change via
    pcihpfs without doing something a bit funky like reporting "-1" in the
    "adapter" node.
