  By default, Hotplug does not output anything in its initscript and places it
  <filename class="directory">/etc/init.d</filename>,
  whereas the place for initscripts in LFS is
  <filename class="directory">/etc/rc.d/init.d</filename>. Apply the patch
  that makes the output of hotplug initscript more verbose and places this
  initscript into the proper directory:
  <screen><userinput>patch -Np1 -i ../hotplug-&hotplug-version;-cosmetic-2.patch
  Apply the patch that avoids bogus dependencies of the hotplug initscript
  upon <application>which</application> and
  <application>usbutils</application> packages:
  <screen><userinput>patch -Np1 -i ../hotplug-&hotplug-version;-bogus-deps-1.patch
  USB coldplugging is somewhat broken in Hotplug by default. Fix this with the
  following patch:
  <screen><userinput>patch -Np1 -i ../hotplug-&hotplug-version;-device-2.patch
  At last, there is an optional patch that adds ISAPNP hardware detection
  capabilities to hotplug. It is not well tested. If you chose to apply it,
  run the following command:
  <screen><userinput>patch -Np1 -i ../hotplug-&hotplug-version;-isapnp-2.patch
  <para>And finally install the hotplug package:</para>
  <screen><userinput>make install</userinput></screen>

  hotplug initscript after mounting and cleaning filesystems:</para>
  <screen><userinput>ln -sf ../init.d/hotplug /etc/rc.d/init.d/S55hotplug</userinput></screen>
  If you have applied the ISAPNP patch, add some required entries to
