I'll look; it looks like it works okay for pc-i440fx-2.9 as well as 2.0
1.6 appears to be the most modern board that has issues, as well as 1.4
and the pc-1.2 board you specify.
commit 9e047b982452 "piix4: add acpi pci hotplug support"
"Add support for acpi pci hotplug using the new infrastructure.
PIIX4 legacy interface is maintained as is for machine types 1.7 and older."
I see piix4_pm_init() disabling use_acpi_pci_hotplug if xen_enabled(),
later when piix4_device_plug_cb() is called for TYPE_PCI_DEVICE it
checks xen_enabled() instead of checking use_acpi_pci_hotplug.
Same happens in piix4_device_unplug_request_cb(), not sure it can be
My guess is changing !xen_enabled() -> s->use_acpi_pci_hotplug fixes
this issue, but I'm not sure this is the safest way to fix it.
I'll send a patch.
