What about
  - change hotplug so that it caches all hotplug events until some init
    script runs 'hotplug --replay'. Then hotplug could handle those
    events.

This may sound reasonable, but I read in some kernel- or hotplug-related
document that such a method has a downside. Don't ask me what's wrong
with it, though.
