The issue is that the framework does not provide the system bus
structure. This is because the system bus structure is not used for CPU
and memory initialization at boot (as I explained in my other email).
The framework manages the calling sequence of hotplug operations, which
is similar to the boot sequence managed by start_kernel(),
kernel_init(), do_initcalls(), etc. In such sense, this file might not
be a good fit for drivers/base, but I could not find a better place for
