No patches posted yet, but hopefully soon. These bits will likely be added
as part of an effort that moves all memory hotplug/unplug into guest
kernel instead of relying on drmgr. Most of the bits for in-kernel
memory hotplug are already upstream, but there's a number of other
requirements in the spec update (like a new hotplug interrupt/queue
instead of re-using EPOW) that need to be addressed as part of the
