    True, but this can get smaller.

    Which invocation? From /sbin/hotplug?

    You crash your power supply :)

    Seriously, the kernel spawns 4000 instances of /sbin/hotplug just like
    it always does. I'm working on keeping udev from spawning anything else
    to keep the process cound down (right now it fork/execs for mknod, but
    that was just me being lazy.)
