hotplugd - Hotplug Support Added to OpenBSD-current

Contributed by grey on from the advanced features dept.

Thanks to those who wrote in reporting that Alexander Yurchenko recently added device hotplug support to the tree and will be enabled by default in GENERIC once testing is complete for all architectures which can support it. According to this log message the architectures in question appear to only be alpha, amd64, i386, macppc and sparc64.

    Does this just work for usb/pcmcia type stuff, or also for scsi devices?

      It can work with any devices, though our scsi layer needs some additional work to support hot plugging, I suppose.
