    No, I'm advocating to break as little as possible. I'm certainly willing
    to port any interesting feature from Rusty's patches. If one feature
    requires changes to modutils, that's fine.

    1. In the past I posted enough example code, which was pretty much
    ignored, why should I think it would be any different this time?
    2. Is hotplug that broken, that it wouldn't survive 2.6, so it required a
    complete new implementation? If that should be case I herewith volunteer
    to add module alias support to modutils.

    bye, Roman
