If a hotplug event occurs after /usr is unmounted, or other resources 
needed by user-created hotplug scripts are not available, the shutdown 
will be "noisy" and various errors will appear on the console. Disabling 
hotplug before taking down critical parts of the system is useful for 
the same reason that not enabling it until the system is ready is useful 
(although not quite as important).
