    When the pci hotplug core sees a new device it calls out to
    /sbin/hotplug to load any available driver (if necessary). So if you
    later plug in the device, everything will work just fine.

    Well, that's the way it's _supposed_ to work, but the pci core changes
    in 2.5.19 seem to have broken this too :(

    /me looks for Pat Mochel...
