In case anyone is wondering if their motherboard (chipset) supports
pluggable eSATA or not, check this table.

lspci should tell you what your computer is running and from there,
you can tell if you have the PMP feature support or not.


# lspci | grep -i ata
00:0f.0 RAID bus controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VIA VT6420 SATA RAID
Controller (rev 80)

That is why my server does not support hot plugging.
