Subject[PATCH v5 0/6] ACPI: Add _OST support for ACPI hotplug

* This version updates the change log in patch 5/6 per the email
discussion below.
This patchset has been accepted in -next, and there is no code
change in this version.

This patchset supports ACPI OSPM Status Indication (_OST) method for
ACPI CPU/memory/container hotplug operations and sysfs eject. After
an ACPI hotplug operation has completed, OSPM calls _OST to indicate
the result of the operation to the platform. If a platform does not
support _OST, this patchset has no effect on the platform.

This _OST support is enabled when all relevant ACPI hotplug operations,
such as CPU, memory and container hotplug, are enabled. This assures
consistent behavior among the hotplug operations with regarding the
_OST support.

Some platforms may require the OS to support _OST in order to support
ACPI hotplug operations. For example, if a platform has the management
console where user can request a hotplug operation from, this _OST
support would be required for the management console to show the result
of the hotplug request to user.

The _OST definition can be found in section 6.3.5 of ACPI 5.0 spec.
The HPPF spec below also describes hotplug flows with _OST.

DIG64 Hot-Plug & Partitioning Flow (HPPF) Specification R1.0

The changes have been tested with simulated _OST methods.

- Updated change log in patch 5/6.


- Added more descriptions to the change logs.

- Added _OST support for container hotplug and sysfs eject.
- Reordered patchset to enable _OST support bit of _OSC in the
last patch.
