Hello Alexandre,

Thank you for your response. I came upon that patch on the Libvirt mailing 
list, too. However, the following comment makes me think that it's not likely 
to be merged:


Also, later in the thread, the author of the patch seems to confirm that the 
plan for hotplug in QEMU is not compatible with that patch:


So, I think Libvirt developers have decided to wait until there is a 
generalized groundwork for VCPU hot-unplug in the QEMU code base. That's why I 
decided to inquire and offer help for QEMU developers, since the ball seems to 
be in their court now.

Thanks a lot for your time.
