Can you please point me/us to the discussion explaining the rationale
behind this move, and the explanation of what will be done exactly?
While I can easily understand that we want to drop CONFIG_HOTPLUG and
always enable hot-plug support, I don't see where we are going with
removing __devinit annotations and the like.
