IIRC q35 supports memory hotplug natively (picked up in some
discussion).  Is that correct?

What does the code emulate?  It doesn't look like it emulates q35 memory
hotplug ...

I think the paravirtual memory hotplug controller should be a PCI device
(which we then can add as function to the chipset).  Having some fixed
magic addresses is bad.

[ btw: same goes for ACPI PCI hotplug, that is hardly fixable without
       breaking compatibility though, for q35 we should be able to do
       better ].
