acpiphp.ko does not work on SLES9-SP4 for hot plug slots behind bridges
This document (7002345) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
The Linux acpiphp.ko hotplug driver does not work. The acpiphp driver does not recurse down PCI bridges to look for hot-plug (ejectable) slots. On hot plug capable servers in which hot plug slots reside behind bridges (virtual bridges, that is, PCI-E switches), the operating system cannot execute hotplug on IO cards attached to the server.
