Good question. ACPI PCI hotplug is a legacy method, which is being
replaced by PCI native hotplug. I expect PCI native hotplug will be
used for any platforms supporting PCI-E. Since this _OST support is
targeted for new platforms (as _OST is not supported on the current
platforms), I thought that it would be prudent to avoid changing PCI
hotplug code for this.


Thanks,
