just curious, what userspace are you using? I have, starting with 2.6.29, a similar problem with tg3. My RHEL4.3 userspace broke hotplugging, because as of 2.6.29 there are two "sysfs" lines in /"proc/mounts". I fixed it in "/etc/hotplug/firmware.agent" by just assuming "/sys" as the "sysfs" mountpoint.

Maybe of course totally unrelated.

Cheers
Martin
