to make the whole hotplug working with intel new cpus with IIO,
in addition to physical cpu and memory hotplug, will still need
a. ioapic controller hotplug
b. intr-remapping hotplug
c. intel-iommu hotplug
d. mmconf support.
e. root bus hotplug

this patch set is only involved with partitally root bus removal/add back.
and assume ioapic, intr-remap, intel-iommu, and mmconf related are
working from early initialization.

that will help us to help to fix bugs like devices refcount leaking.
