Use _RMV method to indicate whether device can be removed.
Data is retrieved from QEMU via I/O port 0xae0c.
Where did this port come from?
Its the next available address after "PCI EJ base", used for QEMU<->ACPI hotplug communication.
What's the protocol?
ACPI reads the 32-bit field indicating the return value of the _RMV method (which is used by Windows to decide removability). 1-bit per slot.
More ports have to be registered if more buses are added.
Maybe we should do this via fw_cfg.
I don't see a need for it? (yes, it might be possible, but i'm not familiar enough with AML).
