What type of device is only sometimes hotpluggable ?
The commit message says "display devices" and "consoles",
but I would expect those to both be types of device which
have a class which is never hotpluggable, so you can mark
them non-hotpluggable with the existing class flag rather
than needing a per-instance flag.
