Please give a better high-level description: outline how an
IO-APIC will be hotplugged physically and what changes the
user will experience.

That needs at least 2 paragraphs, not one cursory sentence. Then
should come technical descriptions - but even those need
improvements, please first explain the current status quo, then
explain how that is inadequate for IO-APIC hot-plugging, *then*
only explain what you are doing in the patch ...
