I don't think this interface makes sense. This stops every device on
the bus, removes the bus, unregisters the host bridge device if we're
removing a root bus.

I think we should just have a "remove *bridge*" interface. It makes
no sense to me to remove a bus but leave the bridge, and it makes the
code quite complicated.

The point of hotplug is to add and remove devices. We'll get
interrupts saying "please remove this device" or "please rescan the
bus behind this bridge because something might have changed."

If we're removing a host bridge, the platform, e.g., ACPI, will tell
us about the bridge that is going away. The notification is attached
to the *bridge*, not the bus it leads to.

The expected mechanism on x86 is an SCI from the platform, but if we
need a sysfs way to start host bridge removal, I think it should be
something like this:

echo 1 > /sys/devices/LNXSYSTM:00/device:00/PNP0A08:00/remove
That corresponds to the way ACPI works, and it corresponds to the way
we manually remove PCI devices.
