I think acpiphp needs a little attention after this patch.  Gary
Hade noticed while testing Jesse's linux-next branch that acpiphp
complains like this:

  acpiphp: ACPI Hot Plug PCI Controller Driver version: 0.5
  acpiphp: Slot [9] registered
  acpiphp: Slot [10] registered
  acpiphp_glue: failed to register interrupt notify handler
  acpiphp: Slot [6] registered
  acpiphp_glue: failed to register interrupt notify handler

I reproduced this on an HP rx3600 (ia64), and found that acpiphp
doesn't complain on commit 82533a617f453, but it *does* complain
on commit fb3383bb4ac6e, which seems to be this patch.

I haven't tried to debug it any farther than just noticing that
acpiphp starts complaining here, so I don't know what the right
fix is, or even if acpiphp is really broken.

I did use acpiphp to power-cycle a slot ("echo 0 > power"), and
it seemed to work despite the warnings.  But I guess the notification
is probably not involved in that path; I suppose the notification
is like a latch or attention button interrupt or something.
