UDEV/Hotplug broken?

Hi all,

As has been mentioned many times recently on BLFS-Dev, it appears
the current implementation of UDEV/Hotplug is broken as it pertains
to automatic loading of kernel modules.

I noticed that adding the following line to a UDEV rule will get
the Hotplug events to work:

rml at rmlinux: ~/build > cat /etc/udev/rules.d/30-hotplug.rules


As I have the following identified as modules, I couldn't get HAL
or any hotplug event for that matter to auto-load the modules:

rml at rmlinux: ~/build > lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
sd_mod                 13712  0
usb_storage            30148  0

Are there any plans to include a UDEV rule to do this in the LFS
book? If so, I will update the HAL instructions accordingly.

Thanks for any information y'all may have about this.
