    Hi Patrick,

      our platform also hot-plug-able and supports maximum four host 
      with different hardware topology. Do we need register and unregister 
      based on hosts inserted or removed from the slot. 

      The multi-host support on obmc-console, host-logger and x86-power-control
      based on number of host passed from receipe.

      I have updated design docuement in below Gerrit and your comments
      will helpful regards hot-plug-able host D-Bus creation and deletion.
