Hi Bjorn,

Thanks for the review.

Yes, the patch only supports the hot-remove for now, because
- I didn't get any requests for the hot-add support. I doubt anyone
hot-adds a Root Port device in practice.
- To be honest, I don't have a test case to verify the hot-add of a Root
Port device.
I used the command line below to test the hot-remove.
sudo bash -c 'echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000\:14\:04.0/remove'
Then the device is gone. I have no idea how to add it back.

So I only implemented the hot-remove in this patch. If anyone requires
the hot-add, I can add it later separately.
