We explicitly enable hotplug for specific machine type versions by
setting sPAPRMachineClass.dr_cpu_enabled. So we check it to ensure
that there are no DR connector objects (the resources needed for hotplug)
created for a machine that doesn't support CPU hotplug. Similar is
the case for memory hotplug.
So you are suggesting that we switch from sAPPR specific check
(sPAPRMachineClass.dr_cpu_enabled) to the above MachineState.cpu_hotplug ?
