To clarify, the ieee1394 support is what needs software that's
as-yet not quite released. Other hotplugging (USB, PCI, network)
still works just fine with 2.4.0 (and, for USB, 2.2.current). The
release is not (as one person suspected :) Science Fiction!

... excluding most of the SuSE-specific admin stuff, so
for now SuSE users will need to get an RPM from SuSE
that knows and uses those hooks. (Much like the way
the Debian and RedHat distros re-use this software.)

I figure converging admin between such distros is not a near
term possibility, but testing for each distro's admin hooks
and then using them is achievable. We're not quite there
yet, but the size of the distro-specific patches should be
shrinking over time ... :)
