PCIe Native Hotplug Integration with ACPI-Based Hotplug

This proposal has been accepted as a session.


One Line Summary

Discussion on how to integrate the native PCIe hotplug (pciehp) with ACPI-based PCI hotplug (acpiphp).


Currently, the native PCIe hotplug (pciehp) and the ACPI-based PCI hotplug (acpiphp) are mutually exclusive, which means that if one of them registers a hotplug slot, the other one will not be allowed to handle hotplug signalling for the device in that slot. That leads to problems on some systems and there seem to be reasons to remove that limitation and there’s a question how it should be done.
