This affects Cross-LFS in a big way, udev rules and the hotplug we 
currently use, does not address all the hardware for all our platforms, 
it also will fix a known hotplug issue with MIPS and ARM based machines, 
that's why this is being investigated and going to be fixed on way or 
another. That's the main reason for Cross-LFS implementing this as soon 
as possible. Every one who has tried to build a modular system on MIPS 
will understand, the problems.
