There's a better solution for firmware: You should load your firmware
prior to suspend and store it in RAM. Anything else just plain does
not work. (Because your wireless firmware might be on NFS mounted over
that wireless card).

Hotplug... I guess udev just needs to hold that callbacks before
system is fully up... it has to do something similar on regular boot,
no?
