Host drivers have the requirement of implementing PCI hotplug
based on the how their SOC supports it.

Couple of properties have been added. the one to enable
the hotplug feature itself, and the other caters to
the PCI hotplug implementation with the use of gpios.

+- slot-pluggable:
+   PCI hotplug feature is supported.
+   PCI hotplug implementation is SOC/Board specific, and also it depends on
+   how add-in card is designed (e.g. how many present pins are implemented).
+   If the slot-pluggable property is present, the following propertey could
+   become effective.

+      Array of gpios, could be present if hotplug is supported.
+      This property defines gpio based hotplug implementation.
+      Example:
+      If x8 card is connected, then it might be possible that all the

+      If x4 card is connected, then it might be possible that 2 present
