I tweaked the changelog (typos, indentation) and applied this to my
"pci/jiang-acpiphp" branch. Kenji acked a previous version, but I
didn't add it here because this is slightly updated.

If the PLX8696 supports moving downstream ports between upstream
ports, it seems like a deficiency if the upstream port doesn't support
native hotplug. If I understand correctly, this patch allows the use
of acpiphp for "hotplug" of the downstream ports, but that is only an
option if the PLX8696 is in the ACPI namespace.

It seems like the lack of PLX8696 native hotplug for upstream ports
mean this virtual switch migration can only be done if the PLX8696 is
soldered into the system -- for instance, we don't have any way to
deal with an 8696 on a plug-in card because ACPI won't know anything
about that device.

I'm not objecting to this patch; I'm just trying to understand the
situation better.
