Intel CPU/Memory HotPlug for OpenSolaris

Cool integration yesterday. Hotplug of CPUs and memory for Intel systems. Last summer, I worked with Intel to ensure that newly added resources are fault managed just as those present at start-of-day are fault managed. And gladly, that functionality is included in this integration.

When resources are added, the FMA topology is updated to reflect the new CPUs/memory, as are the #MC handlers. There's a gap in FRU identification with newly added resources (component labels and serial numbers are sourced from SMBIOS, which is static) but otherwise hotplugged components are handled in FMA.
