Hello Folks,

Any plan to add CXL2.0 switch ports in QEMU?

Hi Ben and Jonathan,

Thanks for your replies. I'm looking forward to the patches.

For QEMU, I see hotplug support as an item on the list and would like to start 
working on it. It would be great if you can provide some pointers about how I 
should go about it.
Also, which version of kernel and QEMU (maybe Jonathan's upcoming version) 
would be a good starting point for it?

Hi Ben, Saransh

I have a forward port of the series + DOE etc to near current QEMU that is 
lightly tested, and can look to push that out publicly later this week.

I'd also like to push QEMU support forwards and to start getting this upstream 
+ fill in some of the missing parts.

Was aiming to make progress on this a few weeks ago, but as ever other 
got in the way.

+CC qemu-devel in case anyone else also looking at this.
