    Subject[ACPIHP PATCH part1 0/4] introduce a framework for ACPI based system device hotplug
    Modern high-end servers may support advanced RAS features, such as
    system device dynamic reconfiguration. On x86 and IA64 platforms,
    system device means processor(CPU), memory device, PCI host bridge
    and even computer node.

    The ACPI specifications have provided standard interfaces between
    firmware and OS to support device dynamic reconfiguraiton at runtime.
    This patch series introduces a new framework for system device
    dynamic reconfiguration based on ACPI specification, which will
    replace current existing system device hotplug logic embedded in
    ACPI processor/memory/container device drivers.

    The new ACPI based hotplug framework is modelled after the PCI hotplug
    architecture and target to achieve following goals:
    1) Optimize device configuration order to achieve best performance for
    hot-added system devices. For best perforamnce, system device should
    be configured in order of memory -> CPU -> IOAPIC/IOMMU -> PCI HB.
    2) Resolve 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
    3) 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 inprogress hotplug operations.
    4) Support new advanced RAS features, such as socket/memory migration.
    5) Provide better user interfaces to access the hotplug functionalities.
    6) Provide a mechanism to detect hotplug slots by checking existence
    of ACPI _EJ0 method or by other hardware platform specific methods.
    7) Unify the way to enumerate ACPI based hotplug slots. All hotplug
    slots will be enumerated by the enumeration driver (acpihp_slot),
    instead of by individual ACPI device drivers.
    8) Unify the way to handle ACPI hotplug events. All ACPI hotplug events
    for system devices will be handled by a generic ACPI hotplug driver
    (acpihp_drv) instead of by individual ACPI device drivers.
    9) Provide better error handling and error recovery.
    10) Trigger hotplug events/operations by software. This feature is useful
    for hardware fault management and/or power saving.

    The new framework is composed up of three major components:
    1) A system device hotplug slot enumerator driver, which enumerates
    hotplug slots in the system and provides platform specific methods
    to control those slots.
    2) A system device hotplug driver, which is a platform independent
    driver to manage all hotplug slots created by the slot enumerator.
    The hotplug driver implements a state machine for hotplug slots and
    provides user interfaces to manage hotplug slots.
    3) Several ACPI device drivers to configure/unconfigure system devices
    at runtime.

    And the whole patchset will be split into 7 parts:
    1) the hotplug slot enumeration driver (acpihp_slot)
    2) the system device hotplug driver (acpihp_drv)
    3) enhance ACPI container driver to support new framework
    4) enhance ACPI processor driver to support new framework
    5) enhance ACPI memory driver to support new framework
    6) enhance ACPI host bridge driver to support new framework
    7) enhancments and cleanups to the ACPI core

    This is the first part of hotplug slot enumeration driver (acpihp_slot).
    And you may pull from: acpihp_slot

    On loading, it will scan ACPI hotplug slots for system device hotplug.
    For example, Intel Emerald Ridge/Quantum S4R platform has
    1) 4 hotpluggable physical processors
    2) 8 hotpluggable memory boards (each processor has two memory boards)
    3) 1 hotpluggable IOH and 1 non-hotpluggable legacy IOH

    #modprobe acpihp_slot
    #cd /sys/bus/acpi/slots
    #ls -l

    lrwxrwxrwx MEM07 -> ../../../devices/LNXSYSTM:00/acpihp/CPU03/MEM07

    For each hotplug slots, it provides following sysfs interfaces:
    # cd CPU00/
    # ls ; MEM00, MEM01 are child hotplug slots
    MEM00 MEM01 capabilities device object power state status subsystem uevent
    # cat capabilities ; show slot RAS capabilities
    # cat object ; show ACPI object corresponding to this slot
    # cat state ; show slot state machine state
    # cat status ; show devie health status
