SubjectRe: SBP2 hotplug doesn't update /proc/partitions
This is perhaps a related problem:  I just noticed that if I have a
firewire drive plugged in at boot, the SBP2 driver detects it during

ieee1394: Host added: ID:BUS[0-01:1023] GUID[0040630000001c47]

But, the drive itself (/dev/sda) and any partitions on it don't show up
in /proc/partitions until I mount one of them or perform some sort of
other access to the drive, like running fdisk on it.

To me, this seems to be a bug. Or is it actually by design?
