Oh, crap! Seems like I'm forever doomed to be sitting on my patches for
six months thinking they arn't good enough, only to then repeatedly
getting beaten by couple of hours when finally deciding on submitting
them then... ;) ;)

I guess I'l just have to dedicate more time if I'm ever going to get any
code into the kernel.

Nice to see this finally getting some attention. Comments below.

This is pretty much identical to my patch except mine also converts PCI
into using add_hotplug_env_var().

This is *exactly* identical to my patch. :)

Are you sure this is correct?

I had problems with alt (intf->cur_altsetting) beeing null and actually
ended up ignoring the interface bits altogether. I'm bretty sure the
above will crash repeatedly on at least some of my machines.

So now that I'm not able to submit it toghether with a mixture of other,
at least slightly, related things that I actually *do believe* have a
small possibility of beeing accepted: How do I get my request_modalias
patch in? ;) ;)

Have a nice day!
