Subject[RFC PATCH v3 00/28] ACPI based system device hotplug framework
The patchset is based on "5f3d2f2e1a63679cf1c4a4210f2f1cc2f335bef6"
from git://
And you pull the changeset from git:// acpihp

Modern high-end server may support advanced hotplug features for system
devices, including physical processor, memory board, IO extension board
and/or computer node. The ACPI specifications have provided standard
interfaces between firmware and OS to support device hotplug at runtime.
This patch series provide an ACPI based hotplug framework to support system
device hotplug at runtime, which will replace current existing ACPI device
driver based CPU/memory/CONTAINER hotplug mechanism.

The new ACPI system device hotplug framework has following design goals:
1) Provide a mechanism to detect hotplug slots by checking ACPI _EJ0 method,
ACPI PRCT (platform RAS capabilities table) and other platform specific
2) Unify the way to enumerate ACPI based hotplug slots. All hotplug slots
will be enumerated by the enumeration driver, instead of by ACPI device
3) Unify the way to handle ACPI hotplug events. All ACPI hotplug events
for system devices will be handled by a generic ACPI hotplug driver,
instead of handled by ACPI device drivers.
4) Solve dependencies among hotplug slots. You need first to remove the
memory device before removing a physical processor if a hotpluggable memory
device is connected to a hotpluggable physical processor.
5) Provide better error handling and recover.
6) Provide interface to cancel ongoing hotplug operations. It may take a
very long time to remove a memory device, so provide interface to cancel
the operation. This is important especially for memory hot-removal.
7) Support new RAS features, such as socket/memory migration.
8) Provide better user interfaces to the hotplug functionalities.
9) Trigger hotplug events/operations by software. This feature is useful
for hardware fault management and power saving.

The new ACPI based hotplug framework is modelled after PCI hotplug
architecture, which uses a hotplug driver to manage hotplug operations
and different device drivers to manage individual devices.

The new framework contains three main components as follow:
1) ACPI system device hotplug slot enumerator, which enumerates all ACPI
hotplug slots according to platform specific knowledges. And it also
provides callbacks to control each slot, such as poweron, poweroff,
get_status etc. Currently there are two built-in methods to detect
hotplug slots.
1.a) Detecting hotplug slot by checking _EJ0 method.
1.b) Faking hotplug slot. Use "modprobe acpihp_slot fake_slot=0xnn",
0x1 for CONTAINER, 0x2 for memory device, 0x4 for CPU and 0x8 PCI host
bridge. The fake slot enumerator will treat each assigned ACPI device
as a hotplug slot, so it could be used for testing on hardware platforms
without hardware hotplug capabilities.
2) ACPI system device hotplug driver, which implements a platform indenpendent
state machine for hotplug slots and also provides sysfs based user
3) Enhanced ACPI device drivers for CONTAINER, CPU, Memroy and PCI host bridge.
All logic to handle hotplug events has been moved from these ACPI device
driver into the hotplug driver. Now these ACPI device dirvers only take
resposibilities configure/unconfigure corresponding system devices when
hotplug happens.

Now 1), 2) and part of 2) are ready, we still need to enhance mem_hotplug
and pci_root drivers to support new hotplug framework.

On my laptop with fake slot enumerator, we got:
root@cat:/sys/devices/LNXSYSTM:00/acpihp# ls
root@cat:/sys/devices/LNXSYSTM:00/acpihp# cd CPU07/
root@cat:/sys/devices/LNXSYSTM:00/acpihp/CPU07# ls
capabilities connect device object state subsystem uevent
configure dependency enable power status type

/* Hot-remove CPU07 */
root@cat:/sys/devices/LNXSYSTM:00/acpihp/CPU07# echo 0 > enable
/* Hot-add CPU07 */
root@cat:/sys/devices/LNXSYSTM:00/acpihp/CPU07# echo 1 > configure

V2->V3 changes:
1) Fix minor bugs and refine code
2) Implement fake slot enumerator for testing
3) Enhance ACPI container driver to support new hotplug framework
4) Enhance ACPI processor driver to support new hotplug framework
5) Resolve dependencies among slots by evaluating _EDL method.
1) Enhance ACPI mem_hotplug driver to support new hotplug framework
2) Enhance ACPI pci_root driver to support new PCI host bridge hotplug
based on Yinghai's work

V1->V2 changes:
1) implement the ACPI hotplug driver
2) enhance ACPI container driver to support new hotplug framework
1) handle ACPI hotplug events in ACPI hotplug driver
2) handle dependencies among slots by evaluating ACPI _EDL
3) enhance ACPI processor, memory and PCI root drivers to support new
hotplug framework
4) develop an ACPI driver for IOAPIC
5) thorough tests:)
