I was basing this on mk_dsdt.c:
        /* hotplug_slot */
        for (slot = 1; slot <= 31; slot++) {

I suppose today we can have other PCI devices, just not hotpluggable.
But I suppose you are right than in the future we might want to
implement more hotplug slots, which would certainly affect the tradeoff
of dynamic vs. static SSDT generation.
