   Hi Wolfgang,

this patch reworks libvirt's disk-hotadd support and
introduces support for disk controller hotplugging and disk-hotremove
(see http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.emulators.libvirt/15860 for
more details). Currently, it targets only qemu and also requires some
additions to qemu that have only recently been submitted, which is
why this  is cross-posted to qemu-devel. Hopefully the lack of support
in qemu does not prevent the community from reviewing the code,
though ;-)

   Could you update us on the status for those patches, is there
any chance to get this in QEmu upstream ? I have only seen feddback
from Gerd Hoffmann on that thread but maybe I'm missing some of the
action !

Note: upstream qemu got device_add and device_del monitor commands meanwhile which can be used to hotplug devices.

device_add accepts the same syntax the -device command line switch expects.

device_del expectes an id.

For libvirt it probably makes sense to start supporting this when switching over to -device (probably for qemu 0.12+).
