Right, I'd hoped tglx would respond as he's got more stuff on his
harddrive. But he's been rather quiet the past few days. This either
means he's ignoring us all and working very hard to finish these patches
so he can post them and delight us all with a new hotplug
infrastructure. Or not and there's something else..

Anyway, I think you're right in that fixing that bringup fail is
important -- and you've done the work already, so yeah unless tglx shows
up soon your patches ought to go on.

I'll try and have a peek at them soon.
