This patch cover the multi-process hotplug case when a share device
attach/detach request be issued from secondary process, the implementation
references malloc_mp.c.

device attach on secondary:
a) seconary send asycn request to primary and wait on a condition
   which will be released by matched response from primary.
b) primary receive the request and attach the new device if failed
   goto i).
c) primary forward attach request to all secondary as async request
   (because this in mp thread context, use sync request will deadlock)
d) secondary receive request and attach device and send reply.
e) primary check the reply if all success go to j).
f) primary send attach rollback async request to all secondary.
g) secondary receive the request and detach device and send reply.
h) primary receive the reply and detach device as rollback action.
i) send fail response to secondary, goto k).
j) send success response to secondary.
k) secondary process receive response and return.

device detach on secondary:
a) secondary send async request to primary and wait on a condition
   which will be released by matched response from primary.
b) primary receive the request and  perform pre-detach check, if device
   is locked, goto j).
c) primary send pre-detach async request to all secondary.
d) secondary perform pre-detach check and send reply.
e) primary check the reply if any fail goto j).
f) primary send detach async request to all secondary
g) secondary detach the device and send reply
h) primary detach the device.
i) send success response to secondary, goto k).
j) send fail response to secondary.
k) secondary process receive response and return.

Patch number 4 should've used this #define to set up its timeout.

I've been bitten by this in the past - some compilers (*cough* clang 
*cough*) don't like this kind of zero-initialization depending on which 
type of parameter comes first in the structure, so i would refrain from 
using it and used memset(0) instead.

here and in other places - strlcpy()?

Why did you look up entry and then marked it as used without checking 
the return value? Leftover? Some code missing?

I think this comment should be at the top of this file.

Some debug code forgot be removed :)

BTW, also accept all other comments
