Sorry, i will add it in the ABI/testing.

The interface introduced here includes:
1) The Service VM virtual CPU hotplug
2) hypercall to the hypervisor to remove one virtual CPU from the
Service VM
The 1) just do the CPU hotplug with kernel API remove_cpu(), and can be
resume back (by CPU online interface) if only 1) is done.
If 2) is done, then the physical CPU will be removed from the Service
VM's CPU pool. The ACRN hypervisor supports passthrough a physical CPU
to a VM. The precondition is that the physical CPU cannot be occupied by
any other VM. This interface intends to do that.

Do you mean use .groups of struct miscdevice directly ?

If yes, let me follow drivers/char/hw_random/s390-trng.c to do this.
BTW, few driver use the .groups directly. :)
