When a hardware device is removed physically or the software disables
it, the hotplug occur. App need to call ether dev API to detach the device,
to unplug the device at the bus level and make access to the device
invalid. But the removal of the device from the software lists is not going
to be instantaneous, at this time if the data path still read/write the
device, it will cause MMIO error and result of the app crash out. So a
hotplug failure handle mechanism need to be used to guaranty app will not
crash out when hot unplug device.

To handle device hot plug failure is a bus-specific behavior, this patch
introduces a bus ops so that each kind of bus can implement its own logic.
