The comment should specify what the actual effects of the flag are.

(Provides the default for Scsi_Host.hotpluggable?)

Ditto here.

(Is used by power management infrastructure to decide over runtime PM
policy? I.e. don't enter power states which would prevent the port from
detecting/ reporting hotplug events?)
