    Not the design center for the original "exec /sbin/hotplug" style
    event delivery, no way!

    A near-term option would be just to have some kind of throttle on
    how many hotplug invocations are going on concurrently -- avoiding
    process creation storms. That should easily take Linux all the way
    into the 2.7 series, for those who want to tread carefully in terms
    of changing sysadmin technologies.
