SATA HDD hot-plugging question

sysadmin
Hello.

Does the ahci driver support SATA HDD hot-plugging? There is no
information about it in the ahci(4) man page.

I have an HP Compaq 8000 Elite Convertible Minitower Business PC
(https://www.support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-compaq-8000-elite-convertible-minitower-pc/4065889/manuals).
Its manual says that SATA HDD hot-plugging is supported in AHCI mode of
SATA controller for Windows driver. I want to install OpenBSD on that PC
and do backups to eSATA HDDs. Will eSATA HDD hot-plugging work?

although it isn't supported today, i think it would be fairly easy to do
if you have an itch for it.
