[Xen-devel] [PATCH] docs: Specify VCPU hotplug procedure for HVMlite guests

HVMlite VCPUs can be added and removed by toggling 'availability'
value of VCPU's xenstore entry.

Signed-off-by: Boris Ostrovsky <boris.ostrovsky@xxxxxxxxxx>

I am not sure this is really needed since it's no different from how we
do hotplug for PV or HVM/qemu-trad guests.

I may have been a bit too grandiose by describing yesterday's patch as
"add CPU hotplug support". It was really enabling existing functionality.
