This updates the existing documentation to reflect recent updates to
the hotplug event structure, which are in draft form but slated
for inclusion in PAPR/LoPAPR.

+QEMU should assume support only for "legacy" fields/flags unless the guest
+advertises support for the "modern" format via ibm,client-architecture-support
+hcall by setting byte 5, bit 6 of it's ibm,architecture-vec-5 option vector

events,
+"modern" format events are surfaced to the guest via check-exception RTAS 
calls,

+advertised to the guest by the addition of a "hot-plug-events" node under
+"/event-sources" node of the guest's device tree using the standard format
+described in LoPAPR v11, B.6.12.1.
