    SubjectWhy is hotplug a kernel helper?
    If you don't mind me asking, I would like to know why the kernel calls
    a usermode helper for hotplug events? Wouldn't a chrdev be a better
    solution (especially considering that programs like magicdev could
    listen in to it as well)? Correct me if I'm wrong, but the kobject
    code never does check the return value from the usermode helper,
    right?
