Subject[PATCH 2.6.18-rc1 1/1] drivers/base: Platform notify needs to occur before drivers attach to the device
The platform_notify call for Arm and PPC architectures needs to be
called before the driver attaches to the device. The problem only
presents itself when hotplugging certain devices while the driver is
already loaded.
