Ok, if we'd support un-hotpluggable mem device, we could retain this
check. But this maybe not a proper place.

Based on my understanding, at this point, every thing has been done
properly. If this check pass, we will send an acpi interrupt to notify
the guest. In case this is an un-hotpluggable device, every thing looks
good but no effect in guest. Because we skip the notification.

Maybe we need to move the check in pre-plug?
