I use hotplug on an initramfs; but not straight away.
I mount /proc, /sys, /dev, run udevstart.
Then you can start populating /bin, /usr, /lib; either with
symbolic links or mount -bind, or whatever you like.
Once this is set up you can exec /sbin/init
My start up scripts will run hotplug as one of the first.
And networking and USB modules are loaded and work fine.
