SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC 0/3] Support CPU hotplug for ARM64
From
Date
Hi Xiongfeng

It is a little bit awkful that I am also  investigating acpi based cpu hotplug
issue silimar with

your idea. My question is your purpose to implement the vcpu hotplug in arm64 qemu?

Thanks for the ellaboration

Cheers,
