Yes i agree it's a common issue should be fixed not only for HSW. In fact
i started to fix the hotplug issue when it's reported from Chromeos, and the
hardware is for Ivybridge/Sandybridge only. Later we find HSW has same problem
and we fix it too.
I donot have Arrandle HW for test/verify, but if it's same issue, i can
continue to fix it.
