I be one of them. :) I have been involved in many (but not all)
of IBM's x86 based (IBM System x) servers with hotplug capable
PCI slots. I have mostly worked on 'acpiphp' associated issues.

I am not fundamentally opposed to this new capability but
share the same concerns that Greg and others have expressed.
So far, I have only tried the changes on one single node
system (IBM x3850) but the below NAK-worthy result supports
the idea that the changes need to be well and widely tested.

Have you possibly considered a kernel option as a kinder and
gentler way of introducing the changes?

====
IBM x3850
Slots 1-2: PCI-X under PCI root bridges
Slots 3-6: PCIe under transparent P2P bridges
Slot 1: PCI-X - populated
Slot 2: PCI-X - !populated
Slot 3: PCIe - populated
Slot 4: PCIe - !populated
Slot 5: PCIe - !populated
Slot 6: PCIe - populated
result is with 2.6.24-rc2 plus all 4 proposed patches
problem: acpiphp failed to register empty PCIe slots 4 and 5
