thanks for spelling out the details of what needs to be done. How
about putting this all (including the kernel patches) in the CLFS book,
with a description of what the kernel patches fix so that people can be
sure what they are testing ?
For example, I've got a usb memory stick somewhere which obviously
needs hotplugging if I connect it after booting, but I'm unclear if any
other devices are likely to be affected - is it only usb and firewire in
consumer-grade machines ?
And, if I don't have any hotpluggable devices on a machine, presumably
I can use a vanilla 2.6.15 kernel with the rest of the infrastructure ?
