I just sent out a series of acpi based root bridge hot-add
patches. I realized that I didn't send the explanation to
all the mailing lists, sorry.

> Here is a series of patches to support ACPI hot-add of a root
> bridge hierarchy. The added hierarchy may contain other p2p 
> bridges and end/leaf I/O devices too. The root bridge itself is
> assumed to have been assigned resource ranges, but the p2p
> bridges and end devices are not required to be initialized by
> firmware. Most of the code changes are to make the existing code
> flows suitable for such a hierarchy of bridges & devices.
> This code supports hot-add on ia64 only for now.It does not yet
> support I/O APIC hot-add, which is needed to make this fully
> functional.  The patches are against 2.6.11-mm4 (plus the patch 
> needed for ia64 to boot). I've tested to make sure this does not 
> break end/leaf device hotplug on the hotplug capable ia64 box I have.
> Thanks,
